In the footsteps of kings and emperors
Follow in the footsteps of famous persons of the past. The Romans settled in Trier 2,000 years ago. Get to know their monuments, their wine, and their food. Aachen is known for Charlemagne and his cathedral. There is also a delicious product of Aachen waiting to be tasted, the Printe, a special kind of brown gingerbread. Watch bakers make those delicious sweets. Feel like a knight in Koblenz and discover fortresses and castles along the Rhine river. Let yourself be inspired while enjoying a local dish and a glass of wine.

Discover the life of medieval merchants
During the Middle Ages, merchants often accumulated great wealth. In the north, the Hanseatic League rose and built walled cities in brick Gothic architecture, like Rostock. In the south, in Regensburg, the patrician towers, the predecessors of the skyscrapers, were very popular. Both Rostock and Regensburg have stories to tell and a lot waiting to be discovered. After a day of new experiences, enjoy a relaxing afternoon on the beach in Rostock. In Regensburg, sit next to the Danube river and have some sausages with sauerkraut in the (supposedly) oldest public restaurant in the world.
