We first visited Rothenburg in the fall of 1984 and it was magical. This visit in Dec 2015 was not. The crowds over-ran the town. Huge lines, massive crowds mixed with personal cars and commercial trucks.

Pros: It's a street, so it's on every map Cons: Can be very busy and full of tourists This is the "Main Street" in Rothenburg; it runs from the Rathaus and MarktPlatz to the Plönlein. So if you are in town, you will likely be on this street. There are some great shops and cafes, and sights to see as... More

The road leading from Marktplatz to Plonlein is definitely picturesque, lined full with shops offering souvenirs and the fragrant lure of caffeine. My imagination was running full steam, bringing me to wonder: how would this street look like in the medieval past? That was before a honk of a delivery van brought me back to the present.

It is pretty much the main street here in Rothenburg. The variety of buildings, businesses, attractions, towers, and cafes will vary from sreet to street but, at the end of the day, not much differentiates the various streets. They are all excellent. For us, this was a great place to put super-dooper pictures of the absolutely most wonderful things we've... More

There are cafes, shops, metzgeri, bakerei, and lots of people watching. Go in the shop that sells the medieval weapons and clothing and go to the basement where they have rebuilt a dungeon with knights at a table. What do you think bent the bars like that?

This street represents what the town is all about. Outdoor cafes with terrific German food along route. Speciality and retail shopping in abundance. If you are a history buff you have hit the "mother load" on this street. Stroll the street you will enjoy... Guaranteed!

The most perfect street. Amazing. Not miss Rothenburg, rather stay there than go to Munich or some other bug city.

It's a mysterical moment as you stroll down the streets. Everything seems so well preserved but not over the top or too commercialised. The colours of every house is wonderful for pictures and street is clean. Highly recommended if you are still thinking whether it's worth visiting.

Stepping into Rothenburg brings you back in time. It's nice to explore the small alleys and residential streets as part of your visit. All these add up to the wonderful atmosphere of the town. I love the colors of the buildings :-)
