Harburg Tours

With the majestic Harburg Castle looming on a hilltop above the scenic River Wörnitz and a cluster of half-timbered buildings that appear plucked from medieval times, the sleepy town of Harburg entices many Romantic Road travelers to pull over. It’s impossible to miss the castle from the roadside, and with its backdrop of forested hillsides and fairytale turrets reflected in the waters below, it’s a magnificent photo opportunity.

Exploring the 11th-century castle is the main highlight of a visit and it’s possible to tour the castle house, chapel, ballroom and dungeons, as well as taking in the views from the guard towers. After visiting the castle, cross the old stone bridge into the small town of Harburg and wander around the maze of medieval lanes, stopping to admire the grand Town Hall on Rathausplatz, where the town’s annual Christmas market is held, or escape into the surrounding countryside, where there’s a network of hiking and biking trails.
