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.

He usado dos veces el recorrido del tren y me ha gustado porque es un viaje corto de unos 40 minutos y se visitan los sitios turísticos de mayor interés, también con el audio te narran la historia de cada sitio.

A pretty little tour that shows all the important stations in Würzburg and provides a nice overview. The audio guide was inclusive and informative

We highly recommend this train tour, we got to see the city from a different point of view, well Worth it.

Würzburg is always worth a trip. Whether on foot or by train.
