A real-life fairy tale: Rothenburg's Master Draught Festival

For an authentic slice of medieval Europe, you won't do much better than Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber.

The bustling town bursts into life during the  Master Draught (or Meistertrunk) festival, when the townsfolk celebrate the town's legacy through theatre, performance, music, parades, costume and the fine foods and drinks you'd expect from Franconia.

At the heart of it all is the performance of the town's favourite story - the Master Draught -  which tells of how the town was saved from destruction when Mayor Georg Nusch succeeded in his challenge to drink over 3 litres of Franconian wine in just one gulp.
