The city hall of this picturesque, undeveloped village reflects its anachronistic spirit.

From the top of the tower you can see the whole town, the mediaval walls and the forest around. Pros: ticket price (2 euros/person). Cons: as in all the towers of this kind, people with a few pounds more, cannot climb the narrow stairs.

Rothenburg is a must if you travel along the Romantische Strasse in Germany. One of the most beautiful towns of the middle ages in the heart of Germany. The town offers a range of very comfortable, some luxurious hotels and restaurants.

Take a break.. stop over atlast for an afternoon and wander through the old cobbled streets of Rothenburg. The gift & souvenir shops, the cafes & the atmosphere... worth a visit!!

We wanted to take the Night Watchman Tour but a sea of high schoolers had the same idea so we reluctantly skipped. We went for takeout which we ate on the steps watching the town and the tourists for a bit. Great town square.

Make sure you climb to the top for a stunning view, and do the tour of the basement vaults to read all about the history of the area. Very good.

The town hall on market square is an imposing building enhancing the atmosphere of the square with its gothic and Renaissance architecture and its clock that shows a figure on the hour enjoying a stein of beer.

Well, 250 steps plus or minus. You'll lose count as you navigate the steep narrow climb, which gets steeper with every step. Not for the faint of heart. But the view is spectacular once you reach the top. The cost is 2 euros (.50 for...More

We paid a couple Euros to hike up to the top of the bell tower. It was a very steep climb (some of it nearly a ladder) but the view from the top was wonderful! The kids really enjoyed this.
