A trip up the Romantic Road to see the walled town of Rothenburg with a private guide


This is the classic trip up the Romantic Road to the fantastic walled city of Rothenburg. Once one of the 10 most important cities in the holy Roman Empire, Rothenburg has been almost frozen in a time capsule since the mid 17th century.

Almost every street and alley in Rothenburg is like a postcard come to life. The half-timbered houses on cobblestone streets are impeccably preserved. The city wall still extends completely around the town. Most of it can be walked (see photos), truly evoking the feeling of what it must have been like to live in the middle ages.

Along the Romantic Road up to Rothenburg we can have an (optional) short visit at a wonderful medieval castle (Harburg) and we have a short stop at another great walled city, Dinkelsbühl.

Base price may be more for larger groups (larger vehicle).

Itinerary

08:30 am pickup
ca. 18:30 return to hotel.

From Munich we head out on the German Autobahn until we reach Augsburg, where we turn off onto the Romantic Road.

On the way to Rothenburg there is an optional short stop at the pristine Harburg Castle, which has never been conquered or destroyed, and we will visit the quaint walled town of Dinkelsbühel with its fantastic medieval architecture. Please see the photos for more information.

A Recent Review of this tour

Kevin was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable, willing to adjust the tour to meet our specific needs, knew all the "off the beaten path" places to eat and see and he has a great personality to go along with it. We used Kevin on three day trips from Munich and each one was 5 stars. We will be telling all our friends if they head to Munich for vacation to contact Kevin!
