I often get sucked in by marketing tricks like the rugged Wild Atlantic Way but in fairness some of them provide great road trips. This one was based on and around the frilly Romantic Road (Romantische Straße), which is the highway between Würzburg and Füssen in Southern Germany.

Everything looks like it’s straight out of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (it was filmed here), or one of those good old evil fairy tales that you might remember from before they got all Disneyfied and cleaned up.
