The name is cute and attractive – but what is really worth knowing about the famous Romantic Route?
Small towns with colorful houses, some in stone, others in half-timbered. A path that begins at the foot of the Alps and ends in the heart of Franconia, in northern Bavaria. About 300 km takes the traveler on an old commercial road used by the Romans – via Claudia Augusta – which in the middle of the 20th century was renamed the Romantic Route.
The route holds many attractions, but some highlights are worth it.
Füssen – just 3.5 km from the Neuschwanstein Palace, Fussen is the first city on the Romantic Route. Whether based on getting to know the palace or even if you skip the visit to the Neuschwanstein, Fussen is a delightful little town to get to know the Alps in Bavaria.
