Well, if you are basically interested in a "drive through" of each place with a short walk-around and looking at a very few key sites, you can do all in a day. I've done so. If you start early in Bayreuth, drive to Bamberg in an hour and spend and hour. Drive two hours to Rotherburg, and spend an hour. Drive another two hours to Regensburg, spend an hour there. That's 8-9 hours of driving and walking around. Then head back to Bayreuth in the evening. You'll get a very basic, but decent, look at each place and see gorgeous countryside while driving.

Bamberg is very close to Bayreuth and it's a main sight.
I'd recommend that you stay in that region (Upper Franconia) and that you'll go to Coburg, too. (25 min by train from Bamberg / 1 h 30 by train from Bayreuth)

Tuebingen came to epitomize that fairytale "German" atmosphere to me.



Wismar was bombed (2 destroyed cathedrals among). I miss miss Erfurt and Stralsund on the list. Also, one should include cities that now are in Poland and Kaliningrad (not in the map below).

Erfurt is on the list. It was one of the few relatively big cities that survived quite intact. Stralsund might have been too small to get on there.
