Germany tours bring travelers to some of the most beautiful landscapes Europe has to offer. There are a variety of ways you can experience the country's rolling hills and lush forests, but one of the best is through a scenic drive. Though you can choose from many routes, each one is as appealing as the next.
A popular option s is the so-called Romantic Road. A 220-mile stretch of highway that runs between the towns of Wruzburg and Fussen, this journey will take you through some of the best scenery in Germany.
Of the many small towns along the way, Rothenburg ob der Tauber stands as a favorite among tourists. The stop has become well-known largely because it has retained much of its old-world charm from the Medieval era, and you'd be hard-pressed to find such well-preserved architecture elsewhere. When the Romantic Road brings you through town, you should be sure to check out St. James Church along with the historic western town gate.
The Romantic Road is also home to many of Germany's most famous castles, and one of which greets you at the very start of the journey. The Maribenberg Fortress looms large over the town of Wruzburg, and is one of the most historic buildings you're likely to encounter on your travels. Built in 704 A.D., the fortress has been used as everything from a refuge to a home for prince-bishops.
Though Rothenburg ob der Tauber and the Marienberg Fortress are highlights, Neuschwanstein Castle is undoubtedly the star of the journey. The iconic structure, which was built by the reclusive Ludwig II of Bavaria, is visited by more than 1 million people each year and is one of the most exquisite castles to grace the European countryside.
The scent of rich pine forests lingers in the breeze as the 13th-century ruins of Turaida Castle are revealed before your eyes in the lush Gauja River valley in a medieval sanctuary untouched by the march of time.
The aroma of dark roasted Viennese coffee hangs thick in the air as you tread the cobblestone laneways and bask in the elegant architecture, atmospheric cafes and refined restaurants in one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe.
