Long-distance Walking Trail
Romantic Road
No matter whether you plan to come individually by car, motor home, motorcycle, bicycle or foot, or in a group, you will
find all the information you need to plan
your journey along the Romantic Road in
the various information brochures, all of
which are designed to make your preparations as easy as possible. Naturally, you
can also download all information from
the internet.
To go walking is to discover slow time. Getting around on your own two legs relaxes you.
Walking takes you away from the hectic comings and goings of everyday life and into a
dimension of reflection. It heightens perception of little things by the wayside, be it the
beauty of a hedgerow, the pure clear air of a beech wood, the song of a lark high above the
fields or the rippling waves on a lake. On the Romantic Road‘s long-distance walking trail,
hikers see and appreciate the spectacularly unspoilt character and beauty of nature. From
the vineyards by the river Main and along the Tauber Valley, the European Watershed in the
Frankenhöhe Nature Park, the fertile farmland of the Central Franconian Basin, the mysterious Ries, the lowland forests on the banks of the Danube and on to the foothills of the
Alps, there is a vast variety of rivers, meadows, grasslands, pine forests and mixed woods,
water-meadows and high moors, magical valleys and picture-book villages, which inspired
so many Romantic painters in the 19th century.

Germany‘s best known and most
popular holiday route
Starting in Würzburg and ending in Füssen, the Romantic Road‘s long-distance
walking trail covers a distance of almost
500 kilometres. It is signposted all the
way and takes you through an atmospheric landscape of traditional variety,
with picturesque little towns, markets
and villages, each with its own historic,
heritage-protected centre. The trail follows the Romantic Road for almost its entire length, passing along woodland and
country paths and quiet little roadways
that give access to the countryside. In the
towns, it takes in the historic town centres
and gives walkers an opportunity to sample the individual local colour and everyday life of the inhabitants.

D9 Long-distance Cycle Trail
Going on a walking tour without stopping
for something to eat and drink would be
an unforgivable mistake on this gastrotrail that is the Romantic Road. A rest in a
village inn often becomes a culinary highlight. A good meal with hearty regional
food and a glass of Franconian wine on the
table in front of you or a beer from a local
micro-brewery – such stops remain as enduring memories. Traditional dishes from
Franconia, Swabia and Upper Bavaria all
find their way onto the tables of the local
inns along the way.

The triad of nature, culture and hospitality has been the trade mark of the Romantic
Road for over 60 years. Running from the River Main to the Alps, it is Germany’s best
known and most popular holiday route. The name Romantic Road expresses what many
guests from home and abroad feel on seeing medieval towns or the fairy-tale castle at
Neuschwanstein: fascination and the sense of being transported back in time. From
Würzburg to Füssen, the Romantic Road opens up a wealth of European history, art and
culture to travellers. On the way from north to south, the landscape changes from river
valleys, fertile agricultural land, forests and meadows to dramatic mountain scenery:
from Würzburg and wine, the Tauber Valley and Rothenburg, via the Ries, Lechfeld and
Pfaffenwinkel districts to the castles of King Ludwig. However, a journey along the
Romantic Road offers much more than beautiful countryside and culinary delights. The
Romantic Road thrives on the harmony of culture and hospitality, on the unending
series of new vistas in polymorphic landscapes, on towns with impressive buildings
that have preserved their original appearance over the centuries. Balthasar Neumann
designed the Residence in Würzburg. Tilman Riemenschneider is present throughout
the Tauber Valley. Carl Spitzweg was fascinated by Rothenburg and Dinkelsbühl. In the
Ries district, you can see the history of the earth for yourself. Augsburg bears witness
to the Romans and, with the ’Fuggerei‘, is distinguished by the first social housing,
which dates back to the 16th century. The ’Wieskirche‘, one of the most famous Rococo
works of art, is to be found in the Pfaffenwinkel district. Hohenschwangau and, above
all, Neuschwanstein, the world-famous castle of Bavarian King Ludwig II, are dreams
in stone of bygone times and mark the end of the Romantic Road at the foot of the Bavarian Alps. If you are travelling by car, mobile home or motorcycle, simply follow the
brown signs that link the individual towns along the Romantic Road. Cyclists can follow
the green signs of the Romantic Road Long Distance Cycle Trail over the 460 km from
Würzburg to Füssen. Under the number D9, this route is also part of the German Bicycle
Club (ADFC) network of cycle routes. The blue signs mark the long-distance walking
trail, a genuine pleasure route of almost 500 kilometres that passes through beautiful
countryside and romantic towns and villages. Take time to explore the landscape, art
and culinary delights that await you along the Romantic Road. On the way from the River Main to the Alps, you can be sure of discovering
a host of extraordinary, inspiring and amazing
sights well off the beaten path of mass tourism.
