Germany’s best known and most popular tourist route opens to the traveler an insight into Germany’s wealth of culture and hospitality.

The romantic Pfaffenwinkel with countless churches and monasteries, the Wieskirche and above all the fairytale castles of the Bavarian King Ludwig II., Augsburg, home of the powerful Fugger dynasty, Dinkelsbühl, Nördlingen in the middle of the Ries crater, medieval Free Imperial Cities like Rothenburg o.d.T. and Bad Mergentheim, renowned metabolic spa, the tauber valley and Franconian wine - All that and a lot more makes up the richness of the Romantic Road.
Sights on the Romantic road near Fuessen:
This once so powerful city under the merchant family of the Fuggers is historically closely connected with Füssen. Even today it is seat of a Roman Catholic bishopric and has sights from many epochs to offer its visitors (about 62 miles, 100 km).
This rococo church (1746-1754) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and should be a stop on every travel route. Seldom have cheerfulness and devoutness been combined more beautifully than in the light-flood interior, which can also be enjoyed during one of the frequent concerts (about 16 miles, 25 km).
