See the Jakobskirche (church) with an altar built by the famous wood-carver, Tilman Riemenschneider. Upon arrival in Rothenburg, a taxi will take you to your hotel.

Beautiful towns on the Romantic Road journey, great accommodation staying with wonderful hosts, great food, amazing scenery. Munich with all the hustle and bustle of a modern day city was fabulous as was our accommodation and proximity to transport.

Wonderful tour along the romantic roads, loved our stay in Rothenburg, lovely hotel stay @ hotel goldene rose, did the night watchmen tour was definatly worth it, tour guide was very informative and funny. The highlight was Neuchwanstein castle which was amazing and beautiful the hotel Muller was a gorgeous hotel only wish we could have arrived earlier as we had to check out quite early in morning so didn't have much time in our lovely room, but no complaints, except Deutche touring did stuff up our dates but promptly rectified.

This tour for us was magic. The hotel in Rothenburg was very comfortable, and the "old town" simply amazing. So much wonderful history, not only here, but along the whole route. Weikersheim was very special. As we proceeded down the Romantic Road we saw the increasing richness of the countryside. Wonderful rich, rich farmlands surrounding beautiful centuries old towns. It was a great way to go, from north to south. To finish in Hohenschwangau, and stay the night at the magnificent Hotel Muller was a terrific surprise, with a view of the "Fairy Tale Castle" from our hotel room window. Many thanks to all those involved, who made this tour so wonderful. The tour leaders, the drivers and the hotel employees who looked after us so well. It went like clockwork.

We really enjoyed this tour. Amazing and beautiful places, good steady coach drivers, adequate bathroom stops (and a toilet on the coach if necessary), all transfers efficient and smooth, lovely hotels booked for us with good rooms and excellent breakfasts, and yet we were still largely independent. Yes, we could have done much of the same tour for a somewhat cheaper price if we had booked each bit ourselves, as we have done for the majority of our travels, but for once it was good to have it all organised for us and it would have been difficult getting back to Munich in the evening after a wonderful day in Hohenschwangau. All 3 meals that we ate at Hotel Muller were excellent and they catered extremely well for my gluten-free diet, as did Hotel Spitz for my Rothenburg breakfast. Viator had informed the kitchens of both hotels and they were ready and aware of my requirements.

This was a great trip. We were able to see the true Germany away from town, it was beautiful. The hotels were well chosen and they went our of there way to make us feel welcome, friendly and helpful with directions. The packages that were prepared for us at each hotel were well put together and presented to us along with person instructions at each hotel. Loved this!
