In Rothenburg, that thousand-year-old city of Bavaria, as in the palace of the Sleeping Princess, time has stood still. The city stands with its walls and castles, its moats and bastions, but it seems to have been forgotten since the fifteenth century; and now wise people have embalmed it as a national treasure. Mr. Cecil Lewis will try to convey the atmosphere of this city of cobbled streets and deep gables - of the dusty palace of bygone princes and the log fires of hospitable inns.
