2. Drive Germany’s Romantic Road

Running from Würzburg to Füssen, this is one of 2 fabulous road trips to be had in Germany. (The other follows the story of the Grimm fairytales.) The Romantic Road passes through gorgeous countryside and dozens of quaint medieval towns and villages full of history and rich in culture. The highlight of the trip for many is the Neuschwanstein Castle. Commissioned by the reclusive and eccentric King Ludwig II, if ever there was a castle to be described as fairytale, it is this one.
