Travel back to medieval times with a visit to the Christmas Capital of Germany!
Rothenburg is still Germany's best-preserved walled town. Countless travelers have searched for the elusive "untouristy Rothenburg. " There are many contenders (such as Michelstadt, Miltenberg, Bamberg, Bad Windsheim, and Dinkelsbühl), but none holds a candle to the king of medieval German cuteness. Even with crowds, overpriced souvenirs, and a nearly inedible pastry specialty (the over-promoted, fried ball of pie crust called a Schneeball), Rothenburg is still the best.

We spent two lovely days with Stan for the Romantic Rhine Classics Tour and the Rothenburg: Germany's Dream Town tour. Stan's experience as a historian and as a sommelier far surpassed the average tour guide. He was knowledgeable, passionate, and attentive to our needs to ensure that we enjoyed our day. We highly recommend Stan's services and would definitely book with him again if we return to Frankfurt. Thanks, Stan!
