The Castle Road
Established over 60 years ago, the Castle Road invites you to take a journey back in time. More than 90 magnificent castles and palaces line this route from Mannheim to Prague. Around 1,200 kilometres in length, the Castle Road takes you through towns and cities steeped in history, such as Bamberg,
Bayreuth, Heidelberg and Nuremberg, as well as 15 places in Bohemia in the Czech Republic, including Cheb, Loket and Karlštejn Castle. Kronach is also one of the stops along the route. As well as the castles and palaces, there are many more impressive historical monuments to discover from different eras. And you can look forward to a warm welcome at the Castle Road’s premium partner hotels, which offer every modern-day comfort for your journey back in time.
