a plot from clever marketeers to increase tourism in the region, the romantic road is a route connecting different picturesque towns in the south of germany. i’m a sucker for a good roadtrip, and this sounded like a great one — so around easter, we packed our friend’s jorge car and the three of us drove all the way down there to check it out.
we started in würzburg and made our way south until füssen, where we visited the “castle to rule them all“. on our way, we passed rothenburg ob der tauber, feuchtwangen, dinkelshbühl, nördlingen, giengen and augsburg, before turning back up and heading towards munich via wies, then finally nuremberg and bamberg.
we visited castles and walked on ancient walls, ate an overwhelming amount of sausages, slept on tiny b&bs with generous breakfast spreads… it was perfect on all accounts. the south hides exactly the kind of hidden medieval germany that one reads about in fairy tale books :)
we took some polaroids on the way, to keep track of the sights and facades… thought i’d share them here.
aaaaah… that brings back some really nice memories! this was also the roadtrip where we crossed the european watershed and saw all the postcrossing bags… but the best of it all? i’ll tell you about it on the next post! :)
