Harburg Castle, which lies on the famous Romantic Road between Füssen and Würzburg, lies within an easy drive from Munich. The castle was first mentioned in official documents at the end of the 11th century and is one of Southern Germany’s best preserved, oldest and certainly most romantic castles. No war, not even a local skirmish has touched the stone walls of this castle and from its turrets and walled fortifications one is offered utterly breath-taking views over the countryside below.

Close by is the medieval town of Dinkelsbühl, which is often overlooked on the tourist trail, as most visitors head straight for the much more famous neighbouring town of Rothenburg. Dinkelsbühl was once a Free Imperial City of the Roman Empire and now belongs to the district of Ansbach, another town well worth seeing en route.

The St. George Minster in Dinkelsbühl, a gorgeous Gothic-style masterpiece dates back to the 15th century and is certainly worth spending time at, as is the Castle of the Teutonic Order, which has a lovely rococo chapel. The old part of the town has many architectural gems to offer, from the Wörnitz Gate to the Weinmarkt, from the Market Place, where the Renaissance Deutsches Haus stands out as particularly lovely, to the pretty Segringen and Nördlingen Streets – they all make Dinkelsbühl well worth the car rental fee.

The town of Ansbach is situated approximately 140 km or 90 miles north of Munich and 40 km or 25 miles southwest of Nuremberg. Ansbach was originally founded by a Benedictine monastery that sprang into life in 748. Around it grew the village and later town of Ansbach, which was mentioned in its present form for the first time in 1221.

The main sights are the Castle of the Margraves of Brandenburg-Ansbach, the Kaspar Hauser Monument that serves as a memorial to the mysterious “wild” boy found in Ansbach, and the lovely 15th century churches of St. Gumbertus, the founder of the original monastery, and St. Johannis.
