  • 1. Old Bridge, Wurzburg, Germany

    The Old Bridge was lined with statues of different saints. We took many good photos of this and the Fortress above the town.

  • 2. St. Kilian Cathedral (Dom St. Kilian)
    St. Kilian Cathedral, Wurzburg, Lower Franconia

    The downtown area was pretty quiet on Sunday morning. We went to the church where mass was going on. There was a Bakerie/Ice shop right outside where we stopped for a sweet.

  • 3. The Residenz
    The Residenz, Wurzburg, Lower Franconia

    The Residenz had a very impressive fountain out in front. We had to check out backpacks in a locker room before entering (1Euro). It was beautiful. There was a separate bulding with the chapel and then you go through a gate to see the gardens in back which were wonderful.

  • 4. Rothenburg
    Rothenburg, Middle Franconia

    It took us about an hour to get to Rothenburg from Wurzburg. We had been there the night before for the Night Watchmans's Tour. Many travel guides say the town is very touristy and it is but it is also very charming and we would go back again because we didn't have enough time to see everything. For the Night Watchman's tour just meet in the town square and pay him 6 Euro at the end of the tour. Quite a few people were on the tour considering it was off season. He was very entertaining. And it gave a good idea of the layout of the city and what we wanted to see when we went back on Sunday during the day.

  • 5. St. Jakob's Kirche, Rothenburg, Germany

    This church has the famous wooden altar carved by Tilman Reichenscheider. It was just amazing with all the detail and to think it was done centuries ago.

  • 6. Kriminal Museum, Rothenburg, Germany

    This is a must see on your visit to Rothenburg. It is a history of all the methods and weapons of torture and punishment from olden times. The exhibit descriptions are also in English. It was interesting to learn that punishment was not indiscriminate but carefully written out in their laws for different infractions.

  • 7. Schneeballs

    Rothenburg is famous for their Schneeballs which are fried dough with powdered sugar or different flavored frostings. They are available at many different locations around town. We bought 2 for our group of 8 to each have a taste. Well, at least we can say we tried them. I think I'll stick to all the other wonderful pastries available at German bakeries.

  • 8. The Rothenburg Wall

    It is a must to walk at least part way around the wall above the town (it is 1 1/2 miles if you walk all the way around). The views of the town itself and the surrounding countryside were tremendous. While we were up there, 2 hot air balloons went over the town which added to the view.
