Romantic Road, Germany

Füssen, Germany

Füssen, GermanyFüssen is located at the very end of the Romantic Road (or the beginning if you are travelling in the less usual direction).

It is hard to think of a better spot for a grand finale.

The town itself has a wealth of historical interest, but it's also close at hand to some of the most popular castles in southern Germany - Neuschwanstein Castle and Hohenswangau Castle.
