Christmas shops dominate the town. Guide provided lots of information on the bus ride to and from. Visit to Harburg castle was well worth the trip and the walk along the wall in Rothenburg gave you great views.

Enjoyed the tour immensely. Very well organized, very knowledgeable guide. In both Harburg Castle and Rothenburg, you are immersed in history. Very picturesque. There was enough time to explore Rothenburg. I especially enjoyed climbing and walking on the city wall that goes around the city. If you go there, make sure you try Schneeballen Snowball, a local dessert. Highly recommend the tour.

Harburg Castle was amazing. Well worth the stop. Rothenburg was very interesting. There was a lot to see and do. We could have spent more time in Rothenburg. The torture museum alone could take a day. Our tour guide Barbara did a wonderful job taking care of us and making sure we knew all the insider spots to see, what to eat, etc. Definitely a tour worth taking.

This tour was perfect. We all met at 8:30 near Munich's train station, and the location was easy to find with a lot of tour buses going to different places. Monika, our tour guide, was informative, helpful, and cheerful all day. She made sure we all knew where to be and when and answered everyone's questions. We first stopped for a tour of Harburg Castle, which is so well-preserved that it could be a movie set. The castle tour guide was succinct and direct, as one might expect in Germany, pointing out various features on how the castle would have defended itself in the event, it was never attacked. She also illustrated that while the time period and the road is Romantic, everyday life in that time period was anything but. Our next stop was 3 hours in Rothenburg: picture a stereotypical German village town and that's Rothenburg. Some people scaled the city walls you can walk the full length in 2 hours, or parts as you wish, some visited the Christmas museum, some went to the numerous churches, some shopped and ate the decadent and messy Schnellballen treats, and we checked out the excellent Criminal Museum museum on torture. In retrospect, we would have skipped the hour we spent eating lunch and just grabbed something to go to eat on the bus ride back, as it left us with that much less time in Rothenburg. We got back to Munich at 6:30pm, exactly as advertised. They sell drinks on the bus so bring a few euros for that, as well as spending money in Rothenburg. Highly recommend!
