One of Europe’s most ingeniously preserved middle age towns, this is one delightful destination. Yes, and it’s a much sought after stopover on the Romantic Road route. Nestled smack on the banks of River Tauber, its 17th century structures look almost untouched. Then there are a string of fascinating museums chronicling the nation’s rich legacy plus the iconic Town Hall, erstwhile churches and ancient mechanical figures. If nothing else, walk through the cobbled streets of the town for a first hand glimpse of Germany’s illustrious history.
