Known as one of the most beautiful cities in Germany, Heidelberg remains an everlasting favorite among tourists. Our journey begins with a fascinating morning tour to this city situated along the pristine River Neckar.

We will visit the world famous castle ruins with its impressive Gothic and Renaissance building resonant of medieval architecture. Stroll on the large courtyard, the mighty terrace and see the Heidelberg Tun, one of the largest wine barrels in the world. Take a walk in the medieval town center and marvel at the Old Bridge, Karlstor, Church of the Holy Spirit, House of the Knights, and the charming lanes lined with half-timbered houses. The city also hosts the Heidelberg University which is the oldest university in Germany.

After which, we will proceed to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Located high above the Tauber River Valley on the Romantic Road, Rothenberg offers captivating sights alongside some of the most preserved archaic buildings in Germany. Go on a sightseeing walk through the picturesque old lanes and the castle gardens. See the majestic St. Jacobs Church and its intricate wood carved altar made by Tilman Riemenschneider, one of Germany's famous artists. Marvel at cozy half-timbered houses, city gates, and the impressive Renaissance Town Hall. You can also drop by to some interesting specialty museums like the Medieval Crime Museum, Doll and Toy museum, German Christmas museum and more.

Rothenberg also offers assortments of items perfect for souvenirs. Choose and buy from elaborately carved woodworks, wine glasses, ornaments, beer steins and adorable cuckoo clocks. Lovely restaurants also populate the area where you can purchase and enjoy traditional German meals like the "schneeball" (snowball) which is a local delicacy made from fried dough ball with many delicious toppings.
