Day 7

Rothenburg, Germany

Tilmann Riemenschneider Hotel
It’s hard to believe that we left home almost a week ago!

After a good night’s sleep, we wake up to a beautiful sunny morning.  As we get ready and decide what we’re going to do, the thunderstorms start and last most of the morning.  It starts to breakup around noon, so we borrow the hotel’s umbrellas and take off on foot to walk the wall of the city.  There are gun turrets all along the wall and towers in strategic locations.  One can only imagine the battles fought atop the wall to save the city from outside forces.

After descending the wall, we walk more around the city:  going to a bank to exchange pounds for euros; printing our photos; getting a light snack at one of the cafes; and then walking back to our hotel via the outside walkway along the vineyards.  It’s time now to get ready for dinner which we decide to have at our own hotel tonight.  Tomorrow we’ll check out and leave Rothenburg behind on our way to Bavaria and Salzburg.
