Subject: Re: Frankfurt or Rothenburg ?
Jean, no question about it. Rothenburg is really great if you like the medieval style of homes and a walled city.

There is nothing like that in Frankfurt, as Frankfurt received a lot of damage in the war. Rothenburg is on the Romance Road and a wonderful drive down through Germany. Much harder doing it by train, but someone did provide that information. Eurail apparently has a discount by bus.

This is what Rick Steves has to say about the bus: Travelers with railpasses (German, Eurail, Europass, or Eurail Selectpass) get a 60 percent discount. The bus waits at stall #9 (right of the train station as you leave) and departs promptly.
