Visit the village of Mödlareuth, which inherited the moniker of 'Little Berlin' due to its wall separating 'east' and 'west'.

This afternoon, arrive in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg, once the unofficial capital of the Holy Roman Empire and today the economic, social and cultural capital of Franconia. During your orientation see the mighty castle ramparts and stand in the Hauptmarkt main square which is dominated by the impressive Frauenkirche, a great example of the Gothic brick-style architecture of the region. Spend the rest of your evening at leisure indulging in grilled nürnberger and sauerkraut.

Day 8 - Continue to Medieval Rothenburg and Munich

Stroll through the narrow lanes of Rothenburg - its beautiful medieval centre seemingly frozen in time and encircled by a fortified town wall that remains intact after centuries.

Day 10 - Admire Neuschwanstein Castle and the Black Forest

Snap your fingers and be transported to a land of fables and folklore. This morning, we tread in the footsteps of shy King Ludwig II visiting his Neuschwanstein Castle, built as a retreat for the king to withdraw from public life. We continue through the magical countryside to the Black Forest, whose mystical landscape inspired fantasy and fiction from the famous Brothers Grimm. This evening, we dine at our Stays With Stories accommodation, Hofgut Sternen, a historic Black Forest style inn at the foot of the romantic Ravennaschlucht (Ravenna Gorge).
