Nördlingen is the southernmost of the three famous walled medieval towns on the Romantic Road. Like Rothenburg and Dinkelsbühl to the north, it too is well deserving of a stop to drink up the atmosphere of the town.
However Nördlingen doesn't just rely on its history and tall tales of nightwatchmen and giant tankards.
It's located in the middle of a meteorite crater and, for anyone with a bit of time during their journey, taking a look at some of the geology of the area (with the help of the informative brochures from the local tourist office) makes an interesting break from the stories of religion and the Seven Years' War.
