Marburg, Germany

— 3 nights
Marburg is a university town in the German federal state (Bundesland) of Hesse, capital of the Marburg-Biedenkopf district (Landkreis). Venture out of the city with trips to Herbstlabyrinth Breitscheid (in Breitscheid) and Parc national de Kellerwald-Edersee (in Bad Wildungen). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St. Elizabeth Kirche, explore the different monuments and memorials at Alter Friedhof, see the interesting displays at Marburger Landgrafenschloss Museum, and ponder the world of politics at Rathaus Marburg.
