America has Route 66, South Africa has the Garden Route and Germany has the Romantic Road. Today, you’ll ride along a stretch of this top tourism trail, which snakes from the vineyards of Wurzburg to the Alps. And it won’t take you long to realise how it got its name. From the bus window, you can admire Medieval villages, pea-green vineyards and fairytale castles. Then you’ll pull up in Rothenburg ob der Tauber for a tour. One of the last walled towns in Germany, this place looks like a Disney film set, thanks to a strict conservation order. During the Second World War, even the Americans realised its importance and they ordered their generals not to use artillery during their assault. You’ll start your visit in the quaint-looking market place, then make your way over to the Castle Gardens for panoramas over the ever-so-pretty Tauber Valley.
If you’re travelling on our Majestic Main & Rhine itinerary, the ship will make a short stop in Marktbreit, where you’ll start your tour. After, you’ll get back on the ship in Wurzburg.
