Rothenburg ob der Tauber Overview

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a Bavarian town overlooking the Tauber River and an important stop along the Romantic Road. Translating to "Rothenburg above the Tauber", Rothenburg has a long history and a lot to see. Quaint and picturesque, Rothenburg is known for being one of the best preserved midieval towns.

The walled-in town can be walked in its entirety (as much is carfree), from which you can observe the beautiful town squares, medieval architecture, and colorful village rooftops. You can relax in a biergarten with breathtaking views, browse for handmade crafts in one of the many shops, or simply wander along the narrow cobblestone streets and immerse yourself in all Rothenburg has to offer.

And when in Rothenburg, be sure to try their Schneeballs in their bakeries! They are balls of twisted dough in many flavors. And there's the Medieval Crime Museum, which isn't for the faint of heart.
