What You Can Expect

Romantic Road, Rothenburg and Harburg Day Tour from Munich

Rothenburg, Germany

Your first stop is Harburg, one of the oldest, largest and best preserved castles of Southern Germany. It was an important military stronghold during the 11th and 12th centuries. Through the Swabian crater landscape passing Dinkelsbuhl, you will arrive in Rothenburg, the most perfectly preserved medieval town in Europe. You will spend about 3 hours in Rothenburg, so there is plenty of time for sightseeing, lunch and shopping.

A popular attraction is the Kathe Wolhfahrt Christmas Store on Herrngasse, a large store open year round where you can purchase ornaments, nutcrackers, and other Christmas items. Many of the highlights in Rothenburg are centered around Marktplatz, such as the Town Hall with its Rothenburg History Museum, and St Jakob's Church, a Gothic building with soaring ceilings filled with light.

You will return to Munich via the Hallertau, the world's largest hop-growing area.

Great day. The whole of Rothenburg was taken back to the Middle Ages with people dresses up in period costume and showed everyone who life was back then. Very interesting day!

I loved experiencing the history of early Germany. It is well-preserved in the buildings of this historical city.

This tour was a great day out. The tour was well organised. It was a lovely drive north from Munich along the Romantic Road, through picturesque villages with architecture dating back many centuries. Our stop at Harburg to view the Palace/Fortress built to protect the King from his enemies was ever so interesting, and the history well explained. The highlight for me was the beautiful Rothenburg. It was magical and belonged on a Christmas card. It was a 10.5 hour trip but well worth it. I would highly recommend this tour.

Truly a wonderful tour and experience. The medieval castle of Harburg was very enjoyable, however the real highlight of the tour was the beautiful village of Rothenburg. Rothenburg encapsulates everything that epitomises a German storybook village filled with many beautiful buildings, quiet alleyways and traditional shops. But the real highlight of our trip to Rothenburg was visiting the Christmas store and trying not to buy everything in the store. I would also definitely recommend trying the local speciality Rothenburg Schneeball pastry snowball, followed by a brisk walk up the top of the city hall for spectacular views over the town. Truly a wonderful tour, and can't wait to visit again
