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

This is one of the many lovely streets in this beautiful town. One of the main streets and is still so regal, you can imagine that this was an upscale area of town at one time. The light green building with red and white shutters used to be the house for Mayor Toppler. This building is now a lovely hotel.

The Schmiedgasse (Smithy Lane) is one of the major streets of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. It starts eastern corner of the Market Place and goes south to the Plönlein (Little Place) where the name of the street changes to Spitalgasse after you pass through the Siebers Tower. On this street, you will find some of the best shops and restaurants.... More
