We asked Marion to take us to towns that were as nice as the really popular ones but not overrun with tourists. Gelnhhausen is on the Fairy Tale road, a well preserved medieval town. We met a city guide there and had interesting discussions of what life is like there for citizens today as well as a tour of this town founded by Barbarossa in 1170. We had a wonderful lunch in a local restaurant. This is exactly the kind of day trip we like to take.
