Set off from Frankfurt on a bus excursion to the historic towns of Nuremberg and Rothenburg.
The trip begins with a visit to the capital of Franconia: Nuremberg. Your guide will show you around the most beautiful sites and monuments of the city, including:
- The Imperial Castle
- The house of Albrecht Dürer
- The town hall
- Hauptmarkt, the square which hosts the annual Christmas Market
- The Gothic St. Lawrence (St. Lorenz) Church
- And much more!
Listen to your guide’s commentary to learn about how Nuremberg evolved from an important trading town in the Middle Ages into a Nazi Germany enclave during the Third Reich, to become a lively and dynamic city.
Make the most of some free time to stroll through the city, and maybe taste a famous Nuremberg sausage.
Then get back on the road and head for Germany’s best-preserved Medieval town: Rothenburg.
Located on Germany’s Romantic Route, Rothenburg has been immaculately conserved since the Renaissance. When you arrive, your guide will lead you on a guided walking tour of the town centre. You can admire the 13th-century ramparts, the Renaissance-style town hall, the timber-frame houses and even the medieval crime museum.
After some more free time to explore the town, you’ll get back on the bus and make your way back to Frankfurt for the early evening.
