We'll be visiting elderly relative in Frankfurt ( Gelnhausen) in May. And we 'd like to see Rothenburg and Nuremburg with her for 2 - 3 days. We plan to stay in Germany 10-12 days but this includes having to go as far north as Delmenhorst ( Bremen) for other relatives for 2 days. We will be renting car and driving on our own. We've been in Germany several times in past and always driven.
We love history,culture, art and architecture.......so Rothenburg's walled town from Middle Ages would be of great interest to us. Is Nuremburg worth a visit also? If not, what other town is close by for a 1 night visit?
How long is drive from Frankfurt to Rothenburg and from Rothenburg to Nuremburg? Any suggestions on accommodations, restaurants and sites, we must see? Preferto stay in historic places - e.g castles or places of historic relevance but with some basic modern comforts as our elderly relative uses a cane. No Four Seasons! No Marriotts, No Holiday Inns!
