From 1170 to 1240, Rothenburg was a Free Imperial City. Strategically located, Rothenburg is nestled on the shores of the meandering Tauber River. A stroll through its narrow, cobblestone streets is a trip back in time.

The highlight of this day is a wine tasting where you will taste different types of regional wines.

Take the time to explore the historic city center at your own pace and see the well-preserved Kaiserburg, Gothic churches, romantic houses and peaceful squares. In the late afternoon, join an interesting tour through the underground cellars of Nuremberg, where you learn more about the history and the elaborate process of beer making that dates back to the 19thcentury. The tour ends with a tasting of a local beer.

The town is famous for its beer and features a lovely old city center, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993.
