Whether its a romantic getaway or a trip to explore with friends this little town is a picture perfect destination that delivers all it promises and more. There is a good balance of one off shops, souvenirs shops, restaurants and attractions. Wuerzburg is only 1 hour away via the Romantic Road. Seek out the smaller wine producers in the local villages (they will have a sign in front of their house), taste their home produced wine and buy some fantastic quality bottle of the local Frankenwine (Im Bocksbeutel p the local bottle shape) for a very competitive price. The wine is so good you be spared a headache the next morning. People are very welcoming and friendly. This is a great base to explore this part of the country.

Just beautiful.....the town is a little jewel box. Wished we could have stayed longer. We'll be back.

Must see town even if for one day. Take the free tour that is offered every evening in the center of town.

This town is a walkers delight! The walls, outside the walls, inside the town, in the valley, by the river...and so many photo ops.

Been there last year, and still feel that the place is charming with the cobbled walkways, the colourful medieval houses. There's many interesting shops selling teddy bears, wooden toys. unfortunately we were there in the low season hence not all the shops are opened. Nevertheless, it's a cosy, quaint and fascinating town.
