Harburg, Germany

The Romantic Road in Germany is one of the most picturesque driving routes in Europe, and the best Romantic Road towns are not to be missed.

Here is my list of the best towns along the Romantic Road:

Home to beautiful wooden houses and historic churches, Dinkelsbuhl is one of the prettiest and most classic Romantic Road towns. If there is one place to visit along the road, this is surely it.

A beautiful stone castle on a cliff welcomes visitors to Harburg. The town itself is an idyllic village on the river, with pretty streets full of shops and cafes that can keep you entertained for hours.

Home to Hohenschwangau castle and nearby Neuschwanstein castle, Schwangau is the perfect base for visiting the most famous castles in Germany. Located near the southern end of the Romantic Road, it is a great place to look forward to as you drive towards it.

Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is arguably the most well-preserved medieval town on the Romantic Road in Germany. History lovers will have no shortage of things to do and see there.
