Amazing what people consider "villages" and "off the beaten path"...

If you'll all notice, Haberman is undoubtedly long back from his search for attractive villages. If he hasn't reported at least with a "thank you", "I enjoyed.XYZ....." or what, then he's gone the way of too many Fodorites who are rarely heard from again once they've returned from a trip. Frankly, I think this is simply bad Forum manners.

While you are in Germany, I like the ADAC StraßenAtlas.

http://www.amazon.de/s/ref=nb_sb_ss_...ra%2Caps%2C376

It highlights scenic routes and stops (towns, castle ruins, monasteries, etc.) For just wandering the country and finding your sights, I found it best.

Regards, Gary
