The countryside between Frankfurt and Munich is Germany’s medieval heartland. The towns in this region are linked by fast train, the A7 autobahn and the scenic driving route called the Romantische Strasse (B17 on the road map). With the autobahn bypassing must-see destinations in the region, the Romantic Road is the prime tourist trail and the best way to wander through the small towns, quaint hills and rolling villages along the route.

On a sunny winter day, the drive from Munich through Landsberg am Lech to Schwangau (Bavaria, southern Germany) offered a beautiful snow blanketed scenery that was just awe-inspiring.
