DAYS 1-2—UNITED STATES/WELCOME TO FRANKFURT Welcome to the energetic city of Frankfurt, with its futuristic skyline and dynamic culture. We'll travel to the village of Marktheidenfeld and settle into our hotel for the next two evenings, the Hotel Zur schönen Aussicht. This inn was built in 1848, overlooks the Main River, and is located at an ideal spot near the romantic Old Town, Franconian vineyards and romantic forests. Tonight we gather together for a welcome dinner. L, D DAY 3—WÜRZBURG This morning, travel to the magical town of Wurzburg to revel in the opulent baroque and rococo architecture of this charming city. Once the great seat of power for the prince-bishops of Germany, no visit to Würzburg is complete without a visit to the Würzburg Residence and gardens. This lavishly-appointed palace is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and illustrates the grand power of the ancient regional rulers. We'll also visit the historical and celebrated Juliusspital for lunch, followed by a stroll through its storied wine cellar. Afterwards, enjoy free time to explore and discover the charismatic Wurzburg Christmas Market in Wurzburg. B, L, D DAY 4—ROTHENBURG/ MS AMADEUS QUEEN MS AMADEUS QUEEN In Rothenburg, the local Cellar Master welcomes us with a 1600s reception, after which we take a guided stroll within the storied walls of this medieval town. Then explore the town's 500-year-old Christmas market, the Reiterlesmarkt. Enjoy roasted chestnuts and perhaps special white mulled cider while browsing the traditional local gifts. And, before leaving, we'll be treated to coffee and a Schneeballen pastry, a favorite of this region. Later a real "WOW" moment strikes as we board our home for the next six nights in Nuremburg, the MS Amadeus Queen.
