Romantic Road, Rothenburg, and Harburg Day Tour from Munich
From US$62.64
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
Admire the countryside, castles and villages of Germany’s Romantic Road on a day trip from Munich. Enjoy a coach drive along the iconic Road, a famously picturesque route through Bavaria’s mountains and forests. Stop at 11th-century Harburg Castle, one of Germany’s oldest fortifications, and continue to Rothenburg, a beautifully preserved medieval town of cobbled lanes, squares, and half-timbered houses. See top attractions such as the Renaissance-era Town Hall and St Jakob’s Church, enjoy free time to wander, have lunch (own expense), and browse the famous year-round Christmas shop.
What to Expect
Your first stop is Harburg, one of the oldest, largest and best preserved castles of Southern Germany. It was an important military stronghold during the 11th and 12th centuries. Through the Swabian crater landscape passing Dinkelsbuhl, you will arrive in Rothenburg, a preserved medieval town in Europe. Spend about three hours in Rothenburg, with plenty of time for sightseeing, lunch, and shopping.
A popular attraction is the Kathe Wolhfahrt Christmas Store on Herrngasse, a large store open year round where you can purchase ornaments, nutcrackers, and other Christmas items. Many of the highlights in Rothenburg are centered around Marktplatz, such as the Town Hall with its Rothenburg History Museum, and St Jakob's Church, a Gothic building with soaring ceilings filled with light.
You will return to Munich via the Hallertau, the world's largest hop-growing area.

Great break to the country side

Rothenburg is VERY touristy, we also visited on the German Day of Unity so only touristy shops were open, which hopefully adds context to this review. Typical touristy coach bus, but the drive to Harburg Castle and Rothenburg was definitely very scenic. Harburg Castle is...More

It seemed almost all shops are closed Sunday (and holidays big or small)in Bavaria, perhaps all of Germany? Restaurants were open.
