It is a place like Tauberbischofsheim that makes people get away from their daily grind and want to travel.
Who wouldn’t want to get away from their typical suburban abode, that looks just like everyone else’s, and be transported back to medieval life? A place where you can stroll along cobblestone streets and wander around looking at many old timber-framed buildings and still not give up any modern convenience.
This is Germany, after all. ;-)
German royalty always had the most modern conveniences of their day and no where is this more evident than at the Kurmainzisches Schloss which was built around 1250. Come visit its grand Gothic halls and rooms, with its museum that has exhibits of Renaissance furniture, clothing, and an all-around look into daily life.
Adjacent to the castle is Tauberbischofsheim’s landmark, the Türmersturm which was built around 1280.
If you want to look deeper into medieval life don’t miss St. Nikolaus with its beautiful frescoes. There’s also the Parish Church Wolfgang Chapel (1472) and many other time-weathered churches around from Gothic to the Baroque that should be visited.
If walking around old buildings isn’t what you’re looking for, then maybe getting outside is. Franconia has some of the most stunning countryside, might as well enjoy it along any number of Nordic Walking, mountainbiking, or cycling trails. One such cycling route comes right through the middle of town along the Swabian Frankish Romantic Road.
You can only imagine where any of the winding walking paths will take you. Since early Stone Age grave hills have been found around town, you’ll find yourself following in the footsteps of those who came long before you did.
It’s pretty much a guarantee those Stone Age guys didn’t have too many life’s modern conveniences, like a cozy guesthouse or Bed & Breakfast. Nor, could they sit at a small cafe enjoying a locally brewed German beer, one of the best of all modern conveniences. ;-)
