What You Can Expect

Four Day Frankfurt to Munich - Romantic Road, Hohenschwangau, Neuschwanstein

Neuschwanstein Castle

Heidelberg Castle is one of the most impressive historic landmarks of Germany, and has been called the red walled castle. Now largely in ruins, it preserves numerous examples of baroque German, Renaissance and medieval architecture.

Visit the 'Jewel of the Middle Ages' - Rothenburg ob der Tauber (Rothenburg above the Tauber). A picturesque city, located 425 meters above sea level, on a plateau at the intersection of the Romantic and Castle Roads, this once free imperial city is one of Germany's most frequented towns. The Tauber River flows below the town in a valley 180 feet (55 meters) deep.

Enjoy the sites and the countryside at your own pace. This independent multi-day package is a combination of guaranteed scheduled coach services with additional features like transfers, hotel accommodation and sightseeing tours. Please read the itinerary below for full details.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Very special. Overnight stay in Rothenburg wonderful, especially as all the day trippers have left. Time to walk the town, do the Night Watchman's Tour and walk the wall which surrounds the village. Simply lovely overnight stay in Hohenschwangau and despite huge numbers of people tour of Neuschwanstein Castle extremely well organised and orderly. Very pretty spot. Although there are short stops along the way bus trip from Rothenburg to Hohenschwangau a very long day.
