There, a giant salt cathedral with a remarkable miner's slide will amaze you, 3D animations will depict the mining of salt in an exciting way, and an unforgettable boat trip will take you across the underground salt lake.
Later on, travel along the sub-alpine road to Füssen. On the way, stop at Lake Chiemsee and enjoy a cable car to the Kampenwand (1,500 m) for a panoramic view.
The day starts with a visit to the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, built by the "Mad King" Louis II and served Walt Disney the inspiration for the castle of the Sleeping Beauty. The castle itself seems to come from a fairy tale, piercing the mist of the hilltop and come to your eyes.
Then, continue the trip to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, the town connecting the Romantic Road and the Castle Road.
