This was our favorite day trip during our trip to Germany. George was a super knowledgeable guide. The drive to the town was beautiful and George showed us some beautiful stops on the way including a stunning church in different little town. Rothenburg is a small town but really beautiful. I would recommend trying the snowballs and then go to the butcher on the main street and get a sausage for lunch. They were so delicious. George recommended the butcher to us on our tour through the town. The Christmas market was one of our favorites in Germany as well. There were really nice people and great stalls. Also visit the popular Christmas store on the main street, you can't miss it. It is the most extensive, impressive Christmas store I've ever seen. We got back to Frankfurt around 7pm. It was a great day.
Add says see the country side - All travel was through Fast AutoBahn taking every journey to and from about 2 hours... About 4 hours spent travelling.
Add says total tour is 9 hours - they were late - left 15 min late, then stopped for fuel, so reached Rothenburg time for lunch, then tour guide said to meet at 3:30 to head back - so our total time was 7 1/2 hours vs the 9. and two hours were in the museum, then time for lunch, so not much time to see the city. Tourist information closed at 1pm and no one told us when we got there they were closed and we had questions - when leaving we saw the grave yard - no one told us - we went to track my wife's family tree -
Tour guide was very friendly - talked on the way, and paid our way into the Mid Evil Museum - so not really a tour just a ride there and back. - he did suggest a place to eat that was good, and showed us a bakery that was good.
I ended up doing the nueschwanstein and Rothenburg day tour and it was phenomenal. Peter (older gentleman) was our guide and since there were only 3 of us we were able to travel in a very nice, new, and clean Mercedes! Peter was a great guide and very knowledgeable. I had an amazing trip!
Nice city.. amazing experience if you love Middle Age issues. Price is a little expensive considering that is just the transport and a brief introduction to history about village.. All travel was through Fast AutoBahn taking every journey to and from about 2 hours... About 4 hours spent travelling.
