In addition to the Christmas market, we will be stopping at the shop of “Kaethe Wohlfahrt”. This is not only a Christmas shop, but it is also a Christmas museum. No trip to Rothenburg would be complete without a visit to a wonderful Teddy Bear Shop. Now that we’ve worked up a good appetite, we will stop for lunch before leaving Rothenburg.

After lunch our tour continues to Nürnberg. Nürnberg is the city of children’s toys, Gingerbread and the famous grilled Nürnberg sausages.
