Nuremberg has gone from being the mighty center of European trade and commerce during the Middle Ages, to becoming the focus scene of the "Third Reich" and nowadays a thriving city. Nuremberg is also the birth place of Albrecht Dürer, one of Germany's greatest artists. It also hosts the famous Christkindl's Market during winter. At lunch, make sure to taste the famous Nuremberg fried sausages!

Next, see the mighty Imperial Castle (Kaiserburg), residence of the Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, the House of Albrecht Dürer, the most famous son of the city and one of "the greatest European artists", the Old City Hall, the main market square, site of the famous Christkindl's market, the beautiful fountain, the church of St. Lorenz, the Church of Our Lady with the "Running Men" clockwork, the Crafts Yard and so much more.

Continue on to the best-preserved medieval town in Germany - Rothenburg ob der Tauber high above the Tauber River Valley on the Romantic Road. Go for a sightseeing walk through the picturesque old lanes and the castle gardens. Then admire St. Jacobs Church and its wood-carved altar by Tilman Riemenschneider. Marvel at half-timbered houses, city gates and the mighty Renaissance Town Hall. In your leisure time, visit the fascinating Medieval Crime Museum, Doll and Toy Museum, German Christmas Museum and many more.
