Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Idyllic medieval town

Rothenburg Pl”nlein square, copyright Rothenburg Tourismus Service
A walk around Rothenburg, a small town on Germany's idyllic Romantic Road is like taking a journey down the centuries. Its proud town hall, lofty towers and stout town walls, its churches and patrician houses bear witness to its history as a powerful free imperial town. Here history is not just dates, it is a vivid and still palpable experience. With its elaborate half-timbered buildings and imposing fortifications, the Rothenburg townscape is still much as it was in the Middle Ages.

Places of interest

Rothenburg Spitaltor Gate, copyright Rothenburg Tourismus Service
The town walls with their battlements and mighty bastions form a protective circle around the precious relics of bygone ages. The Spitalbastei at the southern gate is particularly impressive. Its towers are not the only outstanding feature of St. James's Church; the interior is equally impressive, with three altars by Tilman Riemenschneider, the renowned woodcarver.
