Your first stop is Harburg, one of the oldest, largest and best preserved castles in southern Germany. It was an important military fortress during the 11th and 12th centuries. Through the Swabian crater landscape passing Dinkelsbuhl you will arrive at Rothenburg, the most perfectly preserved medieval town in Europe. You'll spend around 3 hours in Rothenburg, so there's plenty of time for sightseeing, lunch, and shopping.



A popular attraction is the Kathe Wolhfahrt Christmas Store on Herrngasse, a large store open all year round where you can buy ornaments, nutcrackers, and other Christmas items. Many of the highlights in Rothenburg are centered around Marktplatz, such as the Town Hall with its history, Rothenburg Museum and St Jakob's Church, a Gothic building with high lighted ceilings.

You return to Munich via the Hallertau, the largest hop-growing area in the world.
