Travelled: 56 kilometres from Würzburg to Bad Mergentheim along the Romantische Straße, Germany
Visited: Solymar Therme €22.50pp
We are planning to catch up with our neighbours in Innsbrook, Austria in a few days. Rather than drive directly south, we have decided to take one of the German tourist routes called the Romantische Straße (romantic road) which for the rest of this blog I will abbreviate to RR. The route from Würzburg to Füssen is just over 400 kilometres, however as we have already visited Füssen (last year) we will bail before that for Austria.
Anyway it’s late as we leave Würzburg and we have a bit of a battle finding the correct road to drive along. By the time we reach Nördlingen we have found the correct road and start following the signs. So far it’s all back roads, but easy driving.
After a peaceful evening in the stellplatz without paying (the machine was broken), we enjoy coffee and some fruit before getting our swimming stuff together and walking up to the Therme. We decided on the full experience rather than just a swim, hence the cost. So for the next two hours we swim our 40 laps, then try every pool spa and sauna we can. It was fabulous, perhaps even better than that. Obviously they don’t allow you to run around with a camera so…
Back in the Hymer with very clean pores, we hit the RR again.
Travelled: 127 kilometres from Bad Mergentheim to Nördlingen, Germany
Visited: Weikersheim, Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Nördlingen.
Stayed: Nördlingen Stellplatz, €3. All the usual services. N48.85535.
Our second day on the RR…
It’s time to get going again, the stellplatz at Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a bit expensive so we continue on the RR.
We take a walk up through the gates into the old town to take in the sights and find somewhere for dinner.
We soon find a traditional looking place for dinner, enjoy our snitzel with a cold local beer and troken reisling which seemed reasonable at €28. Before wandering back to the Hymer in the dark…
