With your vintage car on the Castle Road


Historical walls and historical vehicles. A trip in a vintage car on the Castle Road brings the two together. Along the main route with a length of 780 kilometres you will pass idyllic and varied landscapes. On the way, around 60 castles and palaces, vintage car and technology museums can be discovered.

The Premium Partner Hotels of the Castle Road offer you a pleasant stay with ideal conditions for drivers and automobiles. In the accompanying free brochure "Oldtimertouren" as well as in the interactive tour maps you will find an overview of suitable parking spaces at hosts and places of interest. 

Especially for classic car drivers, five tour suggestions have been worked out, which can serve as a starting point for your planning. Alternative routes to each tour lead you to great vintage car and technology museums and through scenic areas off the main route.
