A remote mountain-top castle2 Nights | Bed & Breakfast

On a lofty summit originally selected by King Ludwig the Mad for the site of another fairy-tale castle after completion of Neuschwanstein sits a hotel which is like no other. Newly arrived guests are first struck by the endless vistas of mountains, green valleys, lakes, and forests at their feet. Then comes the hotel itself, in which every room was individually and imaginatively decorated by the owners themselves, resulting in living quarters that are not mere guest rooms but distinct creations that exude luxury, taste and comfort. Next to the hotel the ruins of Ludwig's final project still stand, within whose tranquil walls the visitor may better sense the lingering spirit of the eccentric ruler than at tourist-plagued Neuschwanstein, clearly visible in the distance. Travellers who brave the narrow road leading up to the castle will be richly rewarded.



Day 5 and 6: Augsburg

From Pfronten to Augsburg125 km | 2 hours 30 minutes


A historical hotel next to the cathedral1 Night | Bed & Breakfast

The small hotel in the heart of Augsburg has been run by the same family for four generations. Despite its central location, the inn sits in a surprisingly quiet section of the Old Town near the Cathedral, surrounded by narrow medieval streets where time seems to have stood still. The 15th century building originally served as the residence of the Cathedral Provost, Johann Duke of Bavaria, whose coat of arms still adorns the hallway. In 1518 Martin Luther hid from the authorities in the Provost's garden. Other famous guests included Marie Antoinette, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Napoleon III.



Day 6 to 8: Rothenburg

From Augsburg to Rothenburg150 km | 2 hours 30 minutes


The Romantic Road
Germany's most famous and popular holiday route offers charming landscapes, historic cities and castles along the way. It starts at the Main river and passes through western Franconia, Bavarian Swabia, and Upper Bavaria before reaching the edge of the Alps in the eastern part of the Allgäu. It covers 413 kilometers between the city of Würzburg and Neuschwanstein Castle. Sights along the way include the Würzburg Residence, the medieval towns of Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Dinkelsbühl, the Fuggerei in Augsburg, and the town of Landsberg am Lech, with its historic old town and its Wieskirche.

A Tollhouse from the year 12642 Nights | Bed & Breakfast

Originally built in 1264 as a customs house, the hotel occupies one of the best locations in Rothenburg: on main street, next to a medieval city gate and just minutes from the central square. The current hosts, Stephan and Lilo, are the fourth generation of the same family to run the facility, which has been a hotel since 1488. The first thing guests notice is the charming entryway decorated with antiques. The bedrooms come in all shapes and sizes, and no two are alike. They all have one thing in common, however: Each was personally decorated by the hostess with exquisite attention to detail. Guests can sample traditional Franconian dishes and home-brewed beer in the rustic restaurant.



Day 8 to 10: Heidelberg

From Rothenburg to Heidelberg179 km | 3 hours


A Renaissance hotel in downtown Heidelberg2 Nights | Bed & Breakfast

Heidelberg is a romantic old university town with a long pedestrian street, the Hauptstraße, which constitutes the dynamic heart of the city. The hotel stands at the beginning of this key avenue. Its stately facade dates from 1592, the year the gold sign was imprinted that still hangs above the door. Official records show the building served as a town hall for a decade before becoming the Hotel Zum Ritter. Thanks to the hotel's impressive facade and central location, its lovely panelled dining room is popular among the throngs of tourists that flock to Heidelberg. This makes the hotel a very bustling place in the evenings. It has been extended to the rear, and in the newer wing you find ten spacious, modern bedrooms with custom-fitted furniture and floor-to-ceiling draperies. The remaining rooms vary from small single rooms to large bedrooms overlooking the busy main street. The decor is more modern than old-world.



Day 10 and 11: Oberwesel

From Heidelberg to Oberwesel128 km | 2 hours


A medieval castle overlooking the Rhine1 Night | Dinner, Bed & Breakfast

During the 12th century the Dukes of Schöneburg ruled the area from this castle on a hill above the town of Oberwesel and levied duties on Rhine commerce. The castle was burned down in 1689 and lay in ruins for over 200 years until it was bought and restored by an American named Mr. Rhinelander in the early 1900s. Read more→

Today the modern, luxury hotel is owned once again by the town of Oberwesel and has been managed by the Hüttl family since 1957. It offers 20 elegant, individually furnished rooms and two suites with four-poster beds and balconies facing the Rhine River. Guests can stroll through the surrounding forests, meadows and vineyards or just relax and enjoy the one-of-a-kind views.
