GERMANY’S ROMANTIC ROAD

 

8 – 15 August 2022

Monday - Monday

8 Days

From £919

 

The Romantic Road runs through the cultural and historical heartland of southern Germany.

 

We travel through time on Germany’s Romantic Road. Loosely based on an old Roman road, the Romantische Strasse weaves 220miles across some of the Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg’s most quintessentially German sights and settings.

 

Winding through Würzburg, Augsburg, Nuremburg and Rothenburg, this tour offers amazing insight into a wealth of German history, culture, and tradition with a healthy helping of architectural beauty along the way.

 

HOLIDAY HIGHLIGHTS

 

Wurzburg   |   Steiff Museum   |   Augsburg   |   Nuremberg   |   Schloss Weikersheim   |   Rothenburg

 

DAY ONE & TWO – Arrival

We depart from your home and travel to Dover to take the ferry across the Channel to Calais. From here we continue through France to Germany, stopping for an overnight on the way. Arriving at our hotel in Wurzburg on day two.

 

DAY THREE – Wurzburg

This morning, we enjoy a 2-hour guided walking tour of Würzburg Old Town. Enjoy a visit to the marvellous Fortress Marienberg for panoramic views of the area and the surrounding vineyards, then explore further at your leisure. Perhaps visit the Würzburg Residence, a UNESCO world heritage site.

 

DAY FOUR – Steiff Museum & Augsburg

Today, we begin our journey down the Romantic Road towards Augsburg, but first with a stop off at the Steiff Museum to discover the world’s largest collection of Steiff teddy bears.

Back in 1880, when Margarete Steiff invented the “Elefäntle” and saw how the little felt elephant, which had originally been conceived as a pin cushion, soon established itself as a favourite toy, it became clear to her how important high-quality and lovingly designed toys are for children. In the historical area you will see selected and today rare pieces from the 135-year Steiff history. A paradise for fans, collectors and all those who love Steiff animals. Experience how Steiff animals are lovingly handcrafted according to traditional production methods and how Steiff animals see the light of day in our Steiff factory.

Then, afterwards head to the lovely city of Augsburg, where you have some free time before we return to our hotel later.

 

DAY FIVE – Nuremburg

Today, we visit Nuremberg, a city brimming with history and culture. You have time at leisure here to wander through the historic streets of the Old Town, or even eat at the world’s oldest sausage restaurant. Nuremberg is well worth a visit. Furthermore, why not visit the historic palace of Justice as well as the Reichsparteitagsgelände, where the Nazi rallies took place.

 

DAY SIX - Schloss Weikersheim & Rothenburg

Renaissance to the core, Schloss Weikersheim is one of the finest palaces on the entire Romantic Road, surrounded by beautiful formal gardens inspired by Versailles.  We have a guided tour here. Then we travel to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Bavaria, Rothenburg Obder Tauber. Here, we enjoy a guided tour of the magical walled medieval town – one of the only ones left in Germany and setting for the famous film, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

 

DAY SEVEN & EIGHT – Departure
