If you’ve got a spare couple of weeks and you fancy getting off the beaten track and hitting the road, there can’t be many better European road trips than the Romantic Road through Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg in Germany. Named because of its original use by Roman soldiers as they marched through Europe, it’s a popular honeymoon destination by complete coincidence. The stunning scenery, beautiful castles, and interesting cities make it the ultimate road trip.
1. You’ll fall in love with the scenery
When you think of Germany, you might not think of tree-lined roads, great, towering castles, and beautiful river views, but with the Romantic Road, that’s exactly what you get. Located in southern Germany, it’s off the heavily beaten tourist track of the north, although it’s not surprising that it’s growing in popularity. The medieval cities, churches, and castles dotting the dramatic, hilly landscape make the route truly unique.
