Join us for a full-day excursion to Rothenbourg ob der Tauber. Narrow, cobblestone streets, arches and fortified gates, and pastel-colored, half-timbered buildings—this is a place with some serious charm! The city remains Germany's best-preserved, walled town and is often described as straight from a fairytale. Enjoy some free time to browse its Christmas Market, one of the most beautiful in the area. After our tour, we’ll return on board in Heidelberg. The rest of the evening is yours to do as you please.
We’ll spend the morning cruising. On arrival, join us for an optional tour of Speyer. The city is littered with impressive landmarks, including the UNESCO-listed cathedral and medieval ruins from the time when it was inhabited by one of the most important Jewish communities in Germany.
