Nuremberg Culinary Tour

Take to the quaint cobblestone streets of this historic city where you’ll enjoy tasting items relevant to Nuremberg’s history, including spices, teas, gingerbread and fresh pretzels with butter. The tour culminates with some heavier samplings of meat, sausage and potatoes.

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. Enjoy German specialties including sausages, sauerkraut, local beer and wine from the vineyards near Rothenburg's Tauber River—or choose an establishment that offers an international menu. 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.

*Please note that this activity is contingent upon availability as it is a working courthouse.
