Then we drive north to the picturesque town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, on the Romantic Road. Join a walking tour and follow the guide through the town's winding, cobbled lanes. See the half timbered houses, the Renaissance Town Hall and the almost fairy- tale appearance of the majestic town gates that welcome Rothenburg's many visitors from near and far. The tour ends with a return trip to Frankfurt.

It is a 4 hour drive to the castle from Frankfurt and then a wait for timed ticket to enter. There is a 30 minute wait to take the carriage up (reccommended) and then the last carriage is at 4pm so most likely walking down a steep long walk. Wear good shoes. The tour of the inside of castle itself is very brief (20 minute audio which guards rush you through). You will climb up and down multiple spiral stair cases 4 flights. At the end then you are left with souvenirs and a Cafe. Recommend watching the videos at the end for more info. Incredibly beautiful but not enough time to enjoy it or soak in all the details. No cameras allowed inside. Our tour guide Peter was very kind and patient and knowledgeable especially about Rothenberg.


Peter was our local guide as well as professional driver and he was very informative And energetic throughout the trip


These are beautiful places to visit but the distance from Frankfurt is too long! I would take this tour from Munich, which is closer. Peter, our driver and tour guide was excellent. He was very professional, polite, knowledgeable and you will enjoy this tour anyway. We really enjoyed having him as guide and companion the whole day. Again, one problem is the distance from Frankfurt, almost 5 hours! However, when you arrive there everything will be magic and great. The castle, the town and the surrounding are excellent. Rothenburg is a beautiful town and a must see. The problem is that will arrive too late to enjoy it. It deserves at least 2 days stay there. I definitely go back and stay in Rothenburg!


DO NOT BOOK THIS!!! it is almost impossible physically to do this tour. there just isn't enough time in the day. You'll get to the Castle late and by the time you get to Rothenburg it will be night time and everything will be closed. I booked through Viator and they will not compensate us for only getting half of the tour. So basically i paid over $1k for 3 of us to sit in completely uncomfortable van without even a radio for over 10 hour of driving to do just one location - the castle. This tour package is awful and if you need to see these two sites, find another way.


DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR!!! This tour is just physically improbable. There just isn't enough time to do it. It is more than 9 hours in a silent uncomfortable van. I felt like a prisoner with no food. We left at 8:30 am for a tour scheduled at 3:50 pm. We did not get to visit Rothenburg which was the primary reason for our booking. THey are selling this tour which is very expensive and not delivering what was advertised. We got to Rothenburg at 8pm. just in time to see everything close - no sight seeing, no shopping, nothing. JUst a quick drive in a circle then back on the autobahn for more misery. Just rent a car and visit yourself. I'm ashamed I paid this much money for such a miserable "tour".


Long trip, but driver Ken was excellent telling us facts and some history. We also stopped in Rotthenberg on the way back and ate dinner at a fantastic little German restaurant


Our tour guide, Ken was professional, knowledgeable and absolute pleasure to spend the day with. It was a long trip but worth every penny. The sites of the castles and Rothenburg are like nothing you’ve ever seen. I definitely recommend it!


It is not what they say, you are hiring a driver (hugh profesional, no problems with the driver) not a guide. I reach there and I had to wait in a Hotel reception around 3 hours before I get the entrance, and the entrance time was still 2 hours in advance, So I lost 5 hours of the trip just waiting plus 8 hours travel means that I lost 13 hours of the trip and just enjoyed one in the castle. Of course, forget about going to Rothenburg, we where completely out of time by thime I leave the castle. I paid almost 300€, for a one hour visit worth 12€, so the trip costs me 288, for this price I could have gone to Munich, book an Hotel room and make the trip from there. If you want to go, go from Munich, this is a fraud.


The place was in my bucket list places, I can't describe the beauty of this place. I am glad I got to see this fantastic location, if your in Frankfurt this day trip is an excellent option.


We had an amazing trip to Rothenburg and Neuschwanstein castle with our tour guide Thomas. It was just my husband and myself and Thomas was a wealth of knowledge and a pure delight. Thomas showed us where the locals like to hang out and made sure we got time for the best photo ops. We enjoyed every part of our day and if you go, ask for Thomas. He was great!
