Welcome to Castle Road!
On these pages, we would like to invite you on a journey through time along the Castle Road. Our holiday route will take you to well-fortified, massive castles, enchanted castle ruins, magnificent palaces and picturesque, half-timbered houses. Everywhere a bit of the past has stayed alive, and numerous museums and events tell of the ups and downs of such former times.
