May 18 Heidelburg
For the first week we based ourselves at a resort in the foothills of the Alps. From there we travelled to fairy-tale castles of King Ludwig, the "Isle of Flowers" Mainau on Lake Constance and historic cities and towns in Bavaria and beyond.

We then left the resort for Munich and Regensburg for more sightseeing as well as a visit with family. We spent a day in medieval Rothenburg, a town that seemed frozen in time and then traveled north to the Rhineland where we cruised the Rhine, visited medieval Burg Eltz and Roman Trier. We toured the Gothic cathedral in Cologne and the old town of Heidelberg including its famous castle.
