Full Day Tour to Rothenburg

Full Day Tour to Rothenburg from Frankfurt

This full-day tour from Frankfurt to Rothenburg begins with a 2-hour drive southeast — along the famous Romantic Road, a world-wide symbol of German romance — to the picturesque town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Rothenburg, also known as the Jewel of the Middle Ages, is widely believed to be the most well-preserved medieval old town in all of Germany.

Upon arrival, use the included map and take some time to explore the town at leisure or do some shopping. Some of the local sites to see are St. Jakob's Church, the most important church in Rothenburg, or the Medieval Crime Museum (Mittelalterliches Kriminalmuseum), with its vast collection of exhibits detailing more than 1,000 years of German and European legal history.

Enjoy lunch at a traditional German restaurant, including one wine, beer or soft drink, then join the city walk, following a guide through the town’s winding, cobbled lanes. See the half-timbered houses, the Renaissance Town Hall and the almost fairy tale appearance of the majestic town gates that welcome Rothenburg’s many visitors from near and far.

The tour ends with a return trip to Frankfurt.

The highlight was the organised walking tour of the town. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. The length of time allocated in the town was a bonus.

This is a great tour as we had only one spare day in Frankfurt. The day starts at 8am the Hauptbanhof and the drive to Rothenburg is picturesque. The guided tour was excellent and highly recommended. Excellent value for money.

This was a long day as we were on the Romantic Road bus most of the time but of course Germany was beautiful even on a freezing cold summer's day!

Rothenburg is a fantastic medieval town and well worth the visit. On the way we had short stops at a few towns but bus driver didn't tell us what we were looking at. On the return trip we had a different bus driver and he was quite informative. At Rothenburg we had an 1 1/2 walking tour with a guide. She was quite informative. Would have loved to have spent a lot more time in the area.

It was cheaper than full-guided-tour and we enjoyed the trip. Tour bus stops very quickly at several places before arrivng lovely Rothenburg. Rothenburg was good old town to visit as well.

When I received my package of info and it said 'unaccompanied' tour I was afraid it was just bus transportation. I didn't realize the bus driver would narrate the trip and that we would stop at small towns along the way. Rothenburg was great and well worth the trip. Four hours was not nearly enough time to spend there but if you only have one day to spend this is a great way to do it.
