The Middle Ages

Wherever they go, visitors will encounter the fascination of the Middle Ages. When suddenly, in the distance, mighty walls, towers and gates come into view or the hills and mountains are crowned with castles and palaces, it seems as if you have been transported to another age. The imagination takes you back to the times when chivalrous knights, beautiful damsels, jugglers and musicians filled the market places.

Even today, this spectacle can still be experienced in many towns along the Romantic Road enabling the visitor to glimpse this fascinating age of jousting and pageantry or picturesque medieval markets that can turn a castle or even an entire town into a perfect tableau of history. Taking a break, having a look round, enjoying a good glass of wine or a tasty piece of suckling pig from the barbecue – this is how wonderfully relaxing it can be to journey back to the medieval atmosphere of an age long gone.
