Your private guide will pick you up at your hotel.

To begin with, we drive to Harburg Castlelooming over the Wörnitz River. Parapets, towers, and turrets covered the medieval castle keep, and red-tiled roofs of the 12th-century. Schloss Harburg is so perfectly preserved they almost seem like a film set.

From there, we continue the Romantic Road to immaculately preserved Dinkelsbühl. Which proudly traces its roots to a royal residence founded by Carolingian Kings in the 8th century. Dinkelsbühl was saved from destruction in the Thirty Years War and ignored by WWII bombers. Therefore, it is the Romantic Road’s quaintest and most authentically medieval destination.

Time for lunch. Then, we head to the jewel of the Romantic Road, Rothenburg ob der Tauber. One of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities. Because the city was on the wrong side of the 30 Years’ War. Rothenburg escaped damage, but was driven into poverty. And since there was no money for development, as a result, the town was preserved.

In addition, we visit St. James Church’s greatest treasure: the Altar of the Holy Blood. It was produced in Rothenburg between 1499 and 1505. Maybe time for shopping, and in Rothenburg, we find one of the best Christmas shops in Germany (Käthe Wohlfahrt). Afterward, we drive back to your hotel.

We booked the Romantic Road Tour with Amir and his new company Special Private Tours. I have to say, it was an amazing experience. On the way to Rothenburg we called off at Harburg castle perched above the river valley and our guide Amir was fluent in Italian as well as being most knowledgeable about the castle itself. Then a stop at the beautiful small city Dinkelsbuhl, with its well-preserved city walls.
We then proceeded along the romantic road to the UNESCO protected town of Rothenburg. The highlight of our visit was to go to the world famous Christmas Store of Kathie Wolefahrt, where it is Christmas all year around. The town itself is absolutely beautifully preserved in medieval times.

We enjoyed Amir’ s company, his stories, how he is passionate about his job and the places we visited. His friendly but professional behavior made this trip even more special.

Outstanding tour, wonderful tour guide, unforgettable experience

Our private tour with Amir of Special Private Tours was outstanding in every way. Everything went smoothly, from the registration to pick up and drop off at our hotel, and all the activities. The private van was comfortable and spacious. Amir was very knowledgeable and shared lots of interesting information about the sites. We felt fortunate that he was able to customize the trip based on our preferences, and provided valuable tips for maximizing the benefit of our time. At one stop, he showed us the most amazing pretzel we have ever had. This private tour was definitely the highlight of our trip. Highly recommended!

Amazing, personalized experience!

I booked this tour last minute for our family of 5 (older parents, adult children, and teen grandchild) and it was absolutely a superior idea to our initial plan of just taking the train direct to Rothenburg. Amir was gracious in accommodating my last-minute booking and tailoring the day to what we wanted to prioritize – Rothenburg was the main attraction for us initially, but DO NOT SKIP Dinkelsbühl!!! As Amir told us, it is very underrated and overlooked, in fact, my mother wished we had stayed there longer after seeing Rothenburg. (we went in November before the Christmas season was in full swing; great that there were no crowds, but honestly Dinkelsbühl was a more unique “small/old town”. Amir was very professional, considerate, and kind throughout – adjusting to my family’s needs (my mother is not able to walk long distances, so he finds the best places for us to be dropped off from the car, etc.). Aside from giving the history of the places we went to, he also showed us around practical places to eat and shop. The best part about it is really that he will personalize your trip for you, but at the same time be available as a fully-fledged guide!

Wonderful tour with Amir

Our family of four did a private day trip with Special Private Tours. Amir was our guide and he was fantastic. Amir accommodated all of our needs and went over and beyond. We made special arrangements for airport pick up to begin our tour in Germany. Our family did the Romantic Tour with Amir. We made several stops along the way including Harburg Castle, Dinkelsbuhl, and Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber. Amir was very knowledgable of the history and was great at helping us have a good background of what we were visiting. Overall, I can’t begin to tell you what a great day we had with Amir and Special Private Tours. It was a highlight of our trip and well worth every minute. This will be a tour that you will not regret.
