The Romantic Road Travel Guide

When to Go

Late summer and early autumn are the best times to travel the Romantic Road, when the grapes ripen on the vines around W├╝rzburg and the geraniums run riot on the medieval walls of towns such as Rothenburg and Dinkelsb├╝hl. You'll also miss the high-season summer crush of tourists. Otherwise, consider visiting the region in the depths of December, when Christmas markets pack the ancient squares of the Romantic Road towns and snow gives the turreted Schloss Neuschwanstein a final magic touch.
