Top five highlights of my Germany trip

    1. Ulm Minster, Ulm – the tallest church in the world. Its spire reaches 530 feet…amazing. To view information about the church, visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ulm_MinsterUlm Minster
    2. Rothenburg ob der Tauber – the quaintest city I have ever seen during all of my travels. Yes it can get overrun with tourists; however, it is well worth a two-night stay. Once the tour buses depart, the medieval city is at its best. I can’t list one favorite of this city as it’s impossible to choose…from the market squares to the town hall…from the gates to the towers, all were top-notch. I can tell you that when I return to Germany, I will be staying here again. To view information about the city, visit: http://www.tourismus.rothenburg.de/?id=467

    1. Neuschwanstein Castle – by far, my favorite castle of the whole trip. The beauty of castle, along with the setting, couldn’t be beat compared to the other castles seen. To view information about the castle, visit: http://www.neuschwanstein.de/englisch/tourist/index.htm

  1. Kaiserburg (Imperial Castle), Nuremberg – Besides offering tours of the castle, they also Wedding Party inside courtyard in Nuremburghave two rooms available that can be booked for civil weddings or company events. While touring the castle, we witnessed two wedding parties in the inner castle courtyard. As I was climbing up the hill to the castle, it seemed more of a fortress with its stone walls and how it is positioned atop top the city.

  2. Alte Mainbrücke (old bridge), Würzburg – This stone bridge has statues of saints lining it.Statue on Alte Mainbrucke Bridge When we arrived, people socializing and drinking wine by the statues.
