The Romantic Road

Germany’s famous 400 km long road trip is not just for the rosy-eyed lovebirds or heartfelt romantics, it’s a journey of adventure. Along the south-central route you’ll wind your way through medieval villages, fairytale castles and immense landscapes.

When starting from Munich, head southwest to Füssen, the beginning of the road. You hardly have to leave the city before you spot the route’s first grand manor. Neuschwanstein Castle was built for King Ludwig II, and is the real-life inspiration for Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.

From there, make your way north through wine country journeying towards the route’s final destination – Würzburg. While your timeframe may not allow you stop at the numerous sights, don’t miss out on some of the essential highlights including Augsburg, Harburg Castle and Pfaffenwinkel.

Even after half a century and two million visitors a year, the route remains beautifully romantic.

The German Alps

Mittenwald

Snuggled in a valley overshadowed by snow-capped mountains, Mittenwald is a popular alpine destination. Regarded as the “Village of a Thousand Violins”, this colourful town is a full sensory experience, a treat for the ears and eyes.

Mittenwald was the home of Matthias Klotz, who started up the town’s violin-making industry after studying the art in Italy. With high-wood nearby, half the village eventually started crafting the instrustument. Learn about the violin’s heritage at the Geigenbaumuseum Mittenwald (Violin Making Museum) and listen to historical string tunes.

With idyllic landscape all around, Mittenwald spoils the outdoor adventurer. It is an ideal place to wander out into the Karwendel Alps, where you can ride up Germany’s second highest cable-car route.

If you’re interested in exploring more mountainous terrain, you can turn your journey into an extensive southern road trip. Drive along the German Alpine Highway and explore some of the best hiking and skiing spots in the country.
