What You Can Expect

Overnight Frankfurt to Munich - Romantic Road, Rothenburg

Overnight Frankfurt to Munich - Romantic Road, Rothenburg

This 2-day tour begins in Frankfurt with a 2-hour drive southeast — eventually along the famous Romantic Road, a world-wide symbol of German romance — to the picturesque town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Rothenburg is widely believed to be the most well-preserved medieval old town in all of Germany.

Upon arrival, a taxi will transfer guests to Hotel Spitzweg (or a similar accommodation) for a check in. Then, in the afternoon or evening, join the city walk and follow the guide through the town’s winding, cobbled lanes. See the half-timbered houses, the Renaissance Town Hall and the almost fairy tale appearance of the majestic town gates that welcome Rothenburg’s many visitors from near and far. Alternatively, take a walk back in time with the Night Watchman tour of Rothenburg. 

After breakfast the next day, feel free to explore some of Rothebnurg’s most popular sites. Then around noon, embark on a 2-hour trip farther south to Munich, the capital city of Bavaria and one of Germany’s most popular destinations. On the way, travel again along Romantic Road to Augsburg, one of the oldest and most historically significant cities in Germany. This former metropolis was famous for old trade dynasties during the Middle Ages.

Finally, the sightseeing tour ends around 6 p.m. in Munich.

My family of 5 Adults enjoyed this tour very much. It was relaxing and informative. The hotel in Rothenburg was quaint and perfectly located to tour the walled city. We were there during their Medevial Days celebration so were able to enjoy the many period acts. So historic and took us back to a very different time. I highly recommend this tour.

Loved every minute! The Goldene Rose Boutique Hotel in Rothenburg was sensational. Beautifully refinished rooms and a delicious breakfast.

Rothenberg was a great place. Hotel was quite small though, no airconditioning for summer. But the hotel was quaint and had a good breakfast experience.

Everything went as expected. The four of us (wife and two grandchildren, ages 10 and 14) had a good time.

I was impressed by the organization, the info package, the punctuality and the wonderful hotel in Rotterburg.
What I didn't like is that this suppose to be trip with panoramic view but the drivers use the best seats on the coach for their leaflets and personal stuff (4 front seats) and make people that have paid to seat behind. This is very upsetting.

The description does not mention it, but this trip goes all the way to Fussen, where you can see Neuschwanstein Castle...and it is a beautiful sight. The bus does not stop at all places on the Romantic Road, but it will stop at the good ones. Overall, a wonderful trip!

Rothenburg is a bit commercialised - try the smaller towns to stay in. The first driver was excellent - the second was really cranky and refused to tell us where to access taxis in Munich due to lack of interest.

Really enjoyed our stay in Rothenburg. The hotel was charming and the breakfast was wonderful. Didn't really much care for the guided tour in Rothenberg as we preferred to do it on our own. Starting and ending points were convenient train stations.

Day one was not spent much on the Romantic Road, but the stay in Rothenburg was worth it alone. It is a very nice walled village. Day 2 was nice on the Romantic Road, but our driver was a bit impatient on narrow roads. The coordination of bus, taxi, and hotel was a breeze. The tour ended about 4:30 pm, though, so that threw us off some.
