Guided Rothenburg Day Trip from Frankfurt


Journey back in time on a tour to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Your day begins with morning pickup in central Frankfurt. Meet your local guide, grab a seat in the comfortable coach and relax for the scenic ride along Germany's famous Castle Road. Touted as Germany’s best-preserved medieval town, Rothenburg is a window into the past. Follow your guide on a city tour along cobbled streets to view stunning landmarks like the town’s signature half-timbered houses, the old city walls and town gates, the Renaissance town hall and St. Jacob’s Church.  Your trip includes entrance to the 500-year-old church, where you learn fascinating facts about the building and the church’s famous Holy Bloody Altar. If that doesn’t strike your fancy, choose instead to redeem your free entrance pass at Rothenberg's Medieval Crime Museum. After your tour and some independent exploring, re-board your coach for the return ride to Frankfurt, arriving in the evening.  Note: Have the good fortune of traveling to Rothenburg between November 25 and December 23? Be sure to visit the town’s splendid Christmas markets, featuring over 100 decorated stalls selling handcrafted goods and edibles. Shop, sample seasonal treats and experience German Christmas tradition.
