The vibrant colour on the old style architecture in the town of Rothenburg was gorgeous even against a dreary grey sky. Whilst only November when I visited, the feel of Christmas was already in the air. To walk the cobblestone streets and stop at a cosy spot for an espresso and pastry was an everyday indulgence for me. Such a pretty town with so much history and the largest Christmas shop I have ever seen. I came home with a gorgeous music box and a Christmas decoration which takes pride of place on our tree each year.
