Day 1: Nuremberg – Swiss Franconia – Bamberg.
Leaving the local 'metropolis' Nuremberg we are right in the beautiful landscape of Swiss Franconia (Germans tend to name every picturesque area 'Swiss'). Besides the beautiful nature and landscapes this is the world's #1 beer brewing area - nowhere else you will find more breweries (still more than 300). If you feel like it, you're welcome to ask your guide to stop at one or two of them to try these unique beers.
Day 2: Bamberg – Aisch Valley – Tauber valley – Rothenburg.
Following the river Aisch we travel south west. Hidden gems such as Weikersheim Castle (baroque gardens) and the beautiful wood carved Alter in Creglingen are en route as well some romantic villages. In Rothenburg, today’s final destination, there is plenty to discover. Still completely encircled by the town's stone walls and hardly changed for centuries you will feel like you're back into the middle ages.
Day 3: Rothenburg – Würzburg – Steigerwald – Nuremberg.
Our first stop today is Würzburg. Famous churches, the splendid Residenz palace and an impressive fortress await. Afterwards we will continue our way by crossing the Steigerwald a beautiful rural landscape. If you are interested in history the craftsmanship and farming Museum in Mönchsondheim will give you a unique chance to learn about life in former centuries. In the evening we will arrive in Nuremberg, where our tour will conclude.
