The Fairy Tale Road

The Fairy Tale Road

The Fairy Tale Road follows a meandering 370-mile (595km) route that traces the path of famous storytellers the Brothers Grimm. Many people don't realise that the Brothers Grimm didn't simply invent their famous stories, but recorded and collected local legends and folk tales from their homeland near Frankfurt. Between charming villages and well-preserved medieval towns, Germany's Fairy Tale Road wanders through lush forests and Gingerbread houses that were the original homes of well-loved characters like Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel.

Starting in the town of Hanau, where Jakob and Wilhelm Grimm were born, visitors can explore attractions like the Brothers Grimm monument in the town square, the Puppet Museum at Williamsbad, the Marienkirche where Jakob was married, and the Phillippsruhe Palace, which hosts performances of the fairy tales (though mostly in German).

The next town on the journey is Steinau, where the brothers spent their you
