Germany is just littered with picturesque, quaint, postcard looking towns. Rothenburg is probably the climax of how cute these towns can get. It was hailed by the Nazis as the "most German of German towns". The town dates back to something like 1000 years ago.

There's a corridor made to look like a cave! How awesome is that?!
