Christmas Markets

Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Rothenburg, the town of the Romantic Road, really comes into its own at Christmas. The Reiterlesmarkt, in its idyllic setting between the town hall and St. Jacob's Church, is acknowledged as one of Germany's prettiest Christmas markets. Readings of Christmas stories and special deals at hotels and B&Bs; are just two of the many reasons to start planning your trip. There are activities for kids at the 'gingerbread house' and they can join the children's lantern procession. Rothenburg's Christmas market is an enchanted winter wonderland that lasts all the way into the new year. The town also has a Christmas Museum that's open all-year-round.
