(This message is also on the Upper Franconia Forum and on the Rothenburg ODT Forum in hopes of getting more suggestions..)
Mike and I are getting off a riverboat cruise in Nuremberg on a Sunday morning in mid-late November. (The ship will have been in Nuremberg since Saturday morning & we will have been on a city tour on Saturday.) We will be flying to US from Nuremberg early Tuesday morning.
For the 2 nights & nearly 2 days between ship & airplane, we want to go to either Bamberg or Rothenberg using trains & spend 1 night in a local hotel. I am having a really hard time deciding between the 2 historic cities. In either case we will have most of Sunday, Sunday evening & most of Monday to walk around the city, Then Monday evening we have to take train back to Nuremberg and go to a hotel somewhat near the airport, as our flight will be leaving around 7 AM.
So, advice needed: Bamberg or Rothenburg? Hotel recommendations?
