Walking along Rothenburg's well-preserved city walls, you get the impression that time has stopped here. There are no modern buildings, screaming billboards or huge shopping malls in the town. On the cobbled streets there are medieval , half-timbered houses with red roofs, which, combined with the Tauber river winding in the valley, create a truly fairy-tale picture.
Although Rothenburg ob der Tauber is one of the most visited Bavarian towns, it is worth stopping by for a moment. It is a medieval gem and a must-see on the so-called The Romantic Trail (Romantische Straße) through the most beautiful Bavarian landscapes.
Rothenburg ob der Tauber will appeal to all who like sightseeing and historic architecture. It is also a great idea for a day trip from nearby Nuremberg , or a stop on the way to alpine trails.
