Romantic Road and Rothenburg from Munich
- Duration: 10.5 hours
- Optional audio guide
Our tour guide - Monica, was extermely well organised, courteous and enthusiastic. She kept us all well informed about many topics and events associated with different places in our journey - right from Munich to Harburg-Rothenburg and back. She also advised what one could visit on the coming weekdays. Very fortunate that she was our tour guide. Her timely amd knowledgeable commentary throughout the tour kept me engrossed. Now for the tour itself. Tour was pleasant with reasonable time for sightseeing and shopping. Harburg Castle is small but well maintained. Rothenburg is a cosy lil town with very beautiful buildings. Every building is unique. The shops and restaurants were all decked up for the 1st Advent weekend. Cozy and beautiful. Highly recommended.
Overall, I really liked it, however, it was a lot of time spent on the bus and I think that it needs to be made clear that the “romantic road” on the way to the sites is not romantic at all. There are picturesque aspects to it however as the Bavarian countrysides are extraordinary. The tour guides on the bus and at the castle were both very good but the castle was more like a fort than a castle - not very pretty - but the historic aspects were interesting. Would have preferred to have foregone the castle and spent a few more hours in Rothenburg which was really great, but it would have meant a very long bus ride on the way there.
The Guide was very good and kind. Everything went well and we got to know very much about the places where we visited. And during the travelling time on the bus the guide told us many things about Bavaria and so on.
I enjoyed seeing Rothenburg but I think more time should be spent there. Also that bus was over packed. I think they should do small tours. I felt rushed everywhere we went.
This was an amazing place to visit, wish we had more time. The other castle in Harburg was not worth it if they just did a trip to Rothenburg it would have been perfect.
