Your private guide will pick you up at your hotel. First, we drive to Harburg Castle, Looming over the Wörnitz River. The medieval Castle covered by parapets, towers, turrets, 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 the St.James Church’s greatest treasure: the Altar of the Holy Blood. 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.
