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 :-)

This is a remarkable residential area of town that is so well maintained. There must be some town ordinance that requires everything be kept perfect because it sure is.

Lovely shops line the pedestrian walkway for several blocks and the buildings along the way are in perfect condition and share a lot of history with plaques along the way. Good for 1-3 hrs.

The street is a step back in time. The buildings all along it are beautiful restored and maintained and look totally amazing. You step back and look down from the marketplace and all along the street it just looks perfect. There are shops and hotels, guest houses restaurants and cafés in amongst all the buildings and you can just wander... More

This is Rothenburg's main street north and south and passes through the city center. It's all cobblestone and the buildings along it are all extremely well kept and just stunningly beautiful. It's the main tourist area of the city, so it will be busy with people, particularly near the middle of town. You can find about anything you want to... More
