Partake of this for €25 at the Villa Leonhardi – a superb Italian restaurant in an old villa just outside the old city; and once a month they do a seasonal tasting menu for €80‚ which is well worth making the journey for.
Want to see Germany and not stay in the major cities? Fly into Frankfurt, get a car and then start the journey along the Romantic Road as it meanders through Bavaria.
Really want to do it slowly? Ride a bike and when you tire, jump on a bus. The German countryside offers lots and the small towns have plenty of B&Bs for overnight stays. The road itself is busy in summer (as expected) but outside the summer season, the drive itself is relaxing.
The road officially goes between Würzburg and Füssen before ending up at King Ludwig's famous crazy castles.
Don't forget to visit all the other castles along the way.

Germany (arrive via Frankfurt)
This iron footbridge over the river, built in 1869, is a major part of everyday life in Frankfurt and enables you to view the city and river away from the traffic and appreciate that there are some pleasant stretches of embankment to walk along. It crosses from Mainkai near the cathedral to the Sachsenhausen district on the south bank.
