Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber is Germany’s best preserved walled town. This picturesque medieval village is one of the highlights on the Romantic Road, and it receives over 2.5 million visitors a year.
Germany’s Romantic Road is a popular tourist route that spans 220 miles (350km) between Wurzburg and Fussen. Along the way, you have the option to stop at dozens of picturesque villages and medieval walled towns.
Fussen is a charming Bavarian town at the end (or beginning) of the Romantic Road. Just about everyone passes through here on their way to Neuschwanstein Castle, but most don’t stop. Nick and I decided to stay the night in Füssen at an AirBnB, and I’m so glad we did.
Nestled in the hills of Bavaria, just above the village of Hohenschwangau, lies a beautiful fairytale castle fit for the pages a story-book. Neuschwanstein Castle was commissioned by King Ludwig II in 1869.
