Trip Summary

  • Cologne

    The world feels at home in Cologne, where people meet to enjoy a Kölsch. (Kölsch is a language, a philosophy of life and also the popular local beer.) The largest city in the Rhineland, Cologne is rich in antiquity. There is much to see from every period of the city's two millennia history: from the old Roman towers to the modern opera house. Cologne is also a bustling modern city with a decent shot at becoming the fine-art capital of Germany. The city of Cologne is also a center for art and culture, hosting several major art and music festivals.

    Visit Cologne Cathedral, Ludwig Museum, Romano-Germanic Museum, Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Cologne`s Old Town, Groß St. Martin, St. Maria im Kapitol, KölnTriangle, National Socialism Documentation Center, and so much more!

  • Mainz

    This city situated on the Rhine has a rich history, started with the Romans coming here 38 B.C. The 2000 years heritage is revealed by both Roman relics and the impressive baroque palaces and churches built by talented architects and sculptors in the 17th century. The religion always occupied an important role in Mainz and a living proof is the cathedral dominating the Markplatz in the Altstadt (old town). The tourists may notice a remarkable, careful reconstruction after the air raids in 1945.

    Explore Biebrich Palace, Kurfürstliches Schloss, Kunsthalle Mainz, Schloss Park, Zollhafen Mainz, and so much more!

  • Rothenburg ob der tauber

    Rothenburg ob der tauber is often considered one of the most attractive towns in Germany, it`s also one of the most popular stopovers on the country`s beautiful Romantic Road tourist route. Picturesquely positioned on the steep banks of the River Tauber, its walls and towers have remained unharmed since the Thirty Years War of 1618. Adding to the experience are the many great museums dealing with the town`s rich history, along with countless architectural splendors such as the 13th-century Town Hall (Rathaus), the 14th-century Council Tavern, and its many fine old churches. As you explore the town`s impressive old streets and buildings, you`ll feel as if you stepped back in time. St. Jacobs' Church, Market Square, The Town Hall, The Old Town Walls, Medieval Crime Museum, The Christmas Museum, The Imperial Town Museum, Double Bridge, Old Town, and so much more!

  • Nuremberg

    Nurnberg had suffered a lot of damages during the war but nowadays has regained its vitality and is now a symbol of postwar prosperity. Many of Nurnberg's most important buildings, including some of the finest churches in Germany have been restored. The Altstadt (Old City) is a medieval walled city with large pedestrian walkways. Don't miss the city's churches: Frauenkirche St. Lorenze Kirche and St. Sebaldus Kirche and the Albrecht Durer House where the artist lived for 20 years.

    Explore the Imperial Castle of Nuremberg, Old Town, Hauptmarkt, Documentation Center Nazi Party Rally Grounds, Palace of Justice, Natural History Museum, Albrecht Durer`s House, Art Bunker, Churches, and so much more!
