What people are saying about Würzburg

Such a great experience. The tour guide taught us so much about the history of the romantic road, which leads us to rothenburg and it goes further. On the way to rothenburg, we made multiple stops along the romantic road at such beautiful villages. Then rothenburg was so so beautiful. Overall 10/10 would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a day trip from Frankfurt.

The central station in Frankfurt is undergoing maintenance, so finding the meeting point is complicated. Fortunately, our guide, Keiko, met us at the bus stop and we were able to carry out the activity. Great guide, very entertaining. We visited Rothenburg and a few other small towns on the Romantic Road. It is worth strolling through this medieval walled city.
