Romantic Road, Germany

Würzburg, Germany

View of the centre of WürzburgWürzburg is often where a visitor decides to start their tour of the Romantic Road route through southern Germany - and it is a fine introduction to the trip.

The city itself is set in a beautiful hilly location on a river and possesses a wealth of history, as well playing host to a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Residence palace.

It is also smack in the middle of one of Germany's biggest wine-producing areas and has superb connections to other parts of the country.
