Journey to Rothenburg
Travel by motor coach to another picturesque town. A northern Bavarian village, Rothenburg contains an Old Town featuring half-timbered houses standing along cobblestone roads that make it seem straight out of a fairy tale. In fact, it was the inspiration for Pinocchio’s village in the 1940 Disney animated classic Pinocchio!
Check-in at the Hotel Eisenhut
Explore this first-class hotel that offers spectacular views of the romantic Tauber Valley as your Adventure Guides check you in. The Hotel Eisenhut is composed of 4 16th-century mansions that were once the homes of Rothenburg's wealthiest families. It is centrally located near Rothenburg Town Hall and close to some delightful Christmas shops and a doll and toy museum.
Dinner On Your Own in Rothenburg
Choose between casual and fine dining in beer gardens, cafes, inns and romantic restaurants.

Ask your Adventure Guide to recommend the restaurant that best fits your family’s needs!
Night Walk with the Night Watchman
On this twilight tour, see Rothenburg in a whole new light! Follow a costumed Night Watchman as he leads you by the light of a lantern down the town's ancient cobblestone lanes and regales you with fantastical tales of the region.
