Quaint, cute, romantic, nostalgic... what more can you say? It's 'just' a street..and yet it is so much more. If you enjoy quaint little towns/villages, with narrow streets and simply want to absorb the atmosphere, then Rothenburg and the Schmiedgasse won't disappoint.

This quite long cobblestone street is lined with wonderful buildings on either side most of which have shops or cafes/restaurants at street level. There is tons of pedestrian traffic.

Great for small shops that have Christmas decorations, clocks, German related products, and some cafes. Heart of the City that survived WWII bombing.
