Romantic Road Trip through Germany – Itinerary

This past June, my gentleman friend and I planned a very very last minute trip to catch castles and feelings. Okay, the feelings were already there but how can they not grow through a romantic road trip of the most stunning castles, vineyards, and destinations of Germany? 

Like all good road trips nothing went to plan because we didn’t really plan anything! Take a look at our tentative destinations we wanted to visit. 

What ended up actually happening was that as our day went on we visited destinations at our leisure and just chose what looked the nicest while still heading on our way to the ultimate destination: “The Romantic Road”. The Romantic Road is a tourist trap created after World War Two to drive tourism and income back into the Germany. This road travels from Würzburg, Germany and the heart of the reisling region down south to Neuschwannstein, the castle Disney based Cinderalla’s castle after. Despite being a mainly tourist destination it was  a truly stunning region to drive through and explore. 

Here is a map of what where drove through and most of places we stopped at, except the grocery stores and tank stations.
