|One of town's old gates|
The quintessence of medieval, fairy-tale charm. This beautifully preserved city sits on a bluff in gorgeous countryside, its ancient walls following four bends in the Tauber river. Probably attracts as many tourists (mostly tour buses) per square foot as any town in Germany; still, if you haven't seen it you should. Stay overnight and avoid some of the crowds.
