Düsseldorf to Mainz

As you venture from Düsseldorf, a city by the riverside, take note of the exquisite scenery unfolding before you. The romantic Rhine Valley chiseled amid cliffs and forests leads us to the regional capital and media hub, Mainz. With Roaman heritage and renowned for its university, Meinz is also known as Germany’s wine capital. Boasting 2, 000 years of history, the Romanesque cathedral has been the burial place of the ruling Prince Archbishops for centuries. You will find a wonderful and historic market that takes place three times a week here.

Würzburg to Neuschwanstein & Hohenschwangau Castles

Travel the magical Romantische Strasse from Würzburg and become captivated by the well-preserved medieval towns that pepper the rolling landscapes. Visit the 12th century Hohenschwangau Castle, where King Ludwig II spent his childhood and the knights of Schwangau were housed. Then make your way to the cliffside Neuschwanstein Castle, started by King Ludwig II in 1868. Ludwig II died under mysterious circumstances and did not see the completion of his opulent fairy tale castle.

Lindau to Königssee

Dating back as far as 1858, the Alpenstrasse was Germany’s first touring road. As you wind through the Bavarian Alps, take in the pristine emerald green lakes, towering castles and mountains that are cloaked in snow all year-round. Embrace the variety of pursuits on this route, as on one day you are adventuring through King Ludwig II’s opulent castles, the next enjoying a picnic with a meadow as your backdrop and the day after that quietly sailing across a glassy Alpine lake nestled at the foot of a mountainous masterpiece.
