Though gfs and me have not planned to travel the Romantic Road, one of the most popular tourist routes in the world, we yet eventually did the Romantic Road. By coincidence. Fortunately we did so as we ended up in Dinkelsbuehl on Easter Sunday where we around noonish ran into the performance of the Dinkelsbuehler Knabenkapelle. What a most lovely event that has been!
Dinkelsbuehler Knabenkapelle is a music corps of about 100 young bandsmen in their age of 10 to 18. It was not only their music, the spectators adored but their disciplined occurruance, the amazing, red-white shining Rococo uniforms (based on the Badisch-Regiment, for my understanding), and the beautiful faces of the young boys, with them wearing the so called Dreispitz and Zopfperucke.
The repertoire of Dinkelsbuehler Knabenkapelle includes classic marshes and fanfares, opera, operetta, musicals, rock and pop. Outstanding was the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Munich and of the world championship in the year 1974 (soccer finals). Though they do concerts in the US, Canada, and Japan, their web page unfortunately doesn't provide informations written in English.
Cities and villages along Romantic Road are utterly charming. Portions of the road are as old as the Roman Empire, and the route connecting over two dozen picturesque market towns and cities are replete with history - much of it from medieval times.
One could spend weeks wandering the Romantic Road and not tire of the amazing quality of well-preserved castles, Gothic cathedrals, city walls, guard towers, Baroque churches, and half-timbered fachwerk houses. Besides the history, numerous hiking and cycling paths are available, and forests, rivers, lakes, mountains, farms, and beautiful rolling countryside provide for stunning views at every turn.
The Romantic Road features a wonderful combination of history, nature, and culture. The route begins in the Franconian wine country, meanders through the Tauber Valley, passes by the Noerdlingen Ries meteor crater, winds its way through the Alpine Foreland, and ends in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps.
