Tourist attraction in the Allgäu: The Romantic Road

A special journey through time

It is probably Germany's most famous road and definitely a tourist attraction: the Romantic Road in the Allgäu. It is not just a road, it is a special journey through time.

Nature, history, architecture, culture and warm hospitality meet on this route which is more than 400 km long and leads from Würzburg to Füssen.

Those who drive along the Romantic Road – whether by car or bicycle – embark on a journey into bygone times: magnificent buildings, castles, medieval towns and wonderful natural sites await you.


The Romantic Road: 29 Places & 460 Kilometers

The Romantic Road leads from Würzburg to Füssen. Over the entire 460 kilometers, you will pass 29 places that impress with historic buildings, medieval flair or other sights.

Here are a few highlights of the Romantic Road (an excerpt):

  • Pfaffenwinkel: One of the most famous rococo art works: The Wieskirche

Driving & hiking on the Romantic Road

How would you like it? The Romantic Road can be explored at will. Whether you are traveling by car or motorbike, or a bit sportier, would rather use the long-distance cycle route or even the long-distance hiking trail with nearly 500 km from Würzburg to Füssen – the Romantic Road is well signposted and offers the right track for every type of adventure.

If you go by bike or even use the long-distance hiking trail, then you are closer to nature and can breathe the romantic flair along the route. Of course, you do not have to drive or hike the entire route, you can also use sections to make a trip to past times.
