Nice retreat

When the tourists swarm the city and you need a little place to rest in the shade and relax, this is the place. And there are nice views too.

Enjoyed a visit to this park, with nice views of the valley. Of course, my 10 year old had to use the bathroom and we found a nice one in this garden. It was hot out, but the shade was nice and we enjoyed a visit to this park/garden. Lots of pretty plants and flowers!

A small garden. Just go here just to get a view of the valley which is beautiful . There is also some memorials here. Also there is a small structure which was part of the original castle from 1100 s. This garden is currently where the castle was located in 12th century. A building which they say is a chapel...

These gardens are beautiful. They offer lovely views of the medieval skyline. They are cool and relaxing. Great place for a picnic or scenic stroll.

It a great place to get away from the crowds of tourists. You can view the bridge if you don't feel like walking down. The valleys below are so peaceful looking. There are also views of the city and the walls you wouldn't see otherwise.

We stumbled access this small but delightful garden while strolling around Rothenburg. After passing through the castle outer gates (no castle left) it was a lovely oasis to sit and enjoy the views over the old town, also takes in the river and Tauber valley.

This isn't a very big garden, and I'm sure when the flowers are in bloom it is much prettier. I was there in October so I wasn't expecting much, that being said I was still pleasantly surprised by the views. I actually enjoyed the view from the walkways around the garden more than the gardens themselves. It would take no... More

After meandering around the Old Town, we sat down here to rest. The ruins have signs describing what they once were. One has to use the imagination to feel what it was like then. The views of the surrounding countryside are very nice.

Stumbling upon the gardens just as the sun set was more than I could have asked for. It was by far the perfect time to look out at the our scenic surroundings and snap photos.
