Fairy Tale Castles & Romantic Road – Germany

This is one itinerary which will take you back to the world of Hansel & Gratel and Snow White and Sleeping beauty. We drive on some of the most picturesque roads in Germany and visit palaces tucked away in valleys and castles built on hills – a treat to the eyes, and to the lens

 

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS

  • We spend 3 days in Berlin, Germany’s modern-day Mecca of art, culture and fashion, where the remaining symbols of Cold War like Bradenberg gate co-exist with some of the trendiest of bars and night clubs.
  • Visit the Sanssouci Palace and the Lowenburg (or “Lion’s”) castle, before heading toward the Moselle River valley
  • Drive through the Moselle river valley, stopping by at the absolutely stunning 12th century Burg Eltz, nestled in the high hills about the river, and then continue on to Trier, a UNESCO World Heritage medieval city
  • Continue through the Black Forest, passing by the city of Freiburg, and checking out the Hohenzollern & Lichtenstein castles, before reaching the Munich area, where we visit the the crowning glory of all castles – the Neuschwanstein castle, which apparently was an inspiration to Walt Disney Sleeping Beauty!
  • Take the Romantic Road from Ausburg up into Wurzburg, and then into Frankfurt, from where we head back home.
  • Alternatively, for those who want more, we continue from Ausburg to the medieval city of Bamberg, and then make our way to Prague in Czech Republic – the gateway to central Europe and its beautiful architecture.
  • From Prague, drive the scenic country roads back into Germany, and visiting Dresden on the way, we head back to Berlin, to complete the loop

DID YOU KNOW

  • Berlin is the only city in the world with three active opera houses, which can accommodate a total of 4,411 opera attendees. Berlin also has some 150 theatres and halls for every type of event
  • The forests in “Hansel and Gretel”, “Snow White”, and “Rapunzel” are based on the Black Forest.
  • Prague castle is the largest castle area in the world (18 acres in total with numerous courtyards). The Czechs drink more beer per capita than other country in the world (43 gallons a year on average).

WHEN TO TRAVEL

As in most of Europe, summer is the best time to travel, given the long days and warm temperatures. However, most of the roads on these itinerary are narrow country roads, and to avoid traffic and congestion, we recommend Spring (late March-mid May) or Fall (September-October) for best travel experience.
