Finance History and Romance with chauffeured private vehicle
After a guided panoramic tour of Frankfurt I will show you the splendid Unesco listed "Residenz" and Würzburg. We then will drive along a short strech of the famous romantic road passing forested areas, beautiful scenery and vineyards en route to the walled town of Rothenburg.
You will hear about the origin of the name of the road and of the towns, the importance, wealth and decline of this place in the middle ages and the reason of its new-birth in the 19th CY. Learn how Rothenburg managed to survive WWII allies-planned destruction thanks to an American General and a German Major.
Enjoy the views from the top of the walls or stroll through the well preserved medieval town centre, taste some local specialties like the "Schneeballen", visit the Christmas museum at Käthe Wohlfahrt shop, the pilgrimage church of St James or simply share the local hospitality and ambiance.
A great day for a traveller's experience.
