Arriving in Rothenburg
Yesterday we returned from Aachen to Frankfurt and met Judy's friend Claudia who took us to see her family home in the small town of Hochstadt. We then joined our tour group. This morning we travelled to Wurzburg (can't do the umlaut on IPhone) and just before sunset (at 4:15) we reached Rothenburg ob der Tauber. It is a well preserved medieval town which is now famous as THE Christmas town. It really is beautiful, romantic and atmospheric here. The picture shows some of the Christmas market in the squares around the main church and town hall.
