Donauwörth tends to get overlooked when it comes to places to stay along the Romantic Road - but it is a pleasant medium-sized town with plenty to see in the centre when it comes to historic buildings and museums. The junction of the two rivers also makes it an interesting stop to take a wander through in the evening.
One reason for some people to stay here is to take the time and visit the Käthe Kruse doll museum - her dolls have become cult items for collectors in both the German- and English-speaking world.
