Itinerary

Day 1:

Würzburg – Wertheim The trip starts at the Residential Palace of the Prince Bishops in Würzburg, which has been one of the UNESCO world heritage sites since 1981. Wertheim castle is one of the most beautiful ruined stone castles in Southern Germany.

Day 2:

Wertheim – Schillingsfürst Surrounding the two palaces Schloss Gamburg and Schloss Weikersheim are unique baroque gardens. The Palace of the former Elector of Mainz in Tauberbischofsheim was once the administrative centre of the Electorate of Mainz and the history of Bad Mergentheim is closely associated with that of the German Order (formerly: Teutonic Order). The Palace Gardens are extensive and arranged in the English style.

Day 3:

Schillingsfürst – Harburg From the Baroque Palace of the Princes of Hohenlohe-Schillingsfürst there is a magnificent view of the Franconian Heights. Not far from the summer residence of the Princes of OettingenWallerstein lies Schloss Baldern; constructed in the baroque style, it still belongs to the family today. And Harburg Castle, built in the 12th century to protect the ancient trading route, stands above the town of the same name.

Day 4:

Harburg – Schwangau The trip continues southwards along the river Lech, past the former Palace in Rain and the Wittelsbach Palace in Friedberg, straight across the Pfaffenwinkel region to the Wieskirche and on to the so-called 'Königswinkel' or 'Kings' Nook', with its two royal palaces Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. Before visiting the palaces, it is well worth taking a look inside the museum dedicated to the Bavarian kings.

Day 5:

Füssen The last palace on the Romantic Road is to be found in Bavaria's highest lying town – the Hohes Schloss (High Palace) in Füssen. The late gothic fortified castle was, for centuries, the summer Residence of the Prince Bishops of Augsburg and offers the most beautiful view over this town by the river Lech.
