Germany's scenic routes
The Romanesque Road
With its figure-eight shape, the Romanesque Road is so named because it highlights medieval churches, monasteries, cathedrals, and castles built in the noticeable architectural style. Although the Magdeburg cathedral, above, is constructed mostly in Gothic style, its sanctuary reflects strong Romanesque influence, qualifying it for the Romanesque Road.
