We originally found Glocke in December 2006 while visiting Rothenburg. However, we could not remember the name. We walked all of Rothenburg until we again located it. We went on Sunday night to find it was closed for their ruhetag (quiet day). We went back on Monday and had a fabulous meal. My fiancee had the pork filets with mushroom... More

We stayed at a hotel in Rothenburg whose restaurant is rated on this site as one of the finest. Our hotel's restaurant was closed that evening, so we asked our hosts if they could recommend an alternate. They gave their strongest recommendation to Glocke; it turned out to be an excellent recommendation indeed. The food was plentiful and delicious and... More

Ate here with a prearranged menu as part of a tour. The food was good, and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Restaurant is down the hill a bit from the main square, but near the clock that all the tourists go to see. So, you can't really miss it.

A nice restaurant with a quaint atmosphere and locals eating there (always a good sign). I tried their Franconia wine that they make themselves and it was very good. My food was well cooked and good and the waiter was friendly, cheerful, and spoke good English. An enjoyable evening.

I've been to this place each of my last two visits to Rothenburg, and it always results in a good meal.

Heard great reviews of this place. I had the Pike. It was good,but not over the top. The mustard sauce and red cabbage was ok. There were bones in the fish. The potatoes that were served with this were bland and tasteless. My son had the schnitzel, it was average. The service was good. Would not return though.

Rothenberg is a wonderfully traditional and post card kind of city. We visited on a tour in November and it looked as it might exude Christmas year round. The tour was wonderful and included lunch at the Glocke. Lunch far exceeded our expectation. We were a group of about 45, and were served a wonderful lunch with wine included. The... More

Rothenburg is a tourist destination after all and wandering down the 'high street' there are a number of touristy restaurants to choose from. We were on business, and for some reason on this particular night, Glocke seemed the best option. A little more authentic and down-to-earth is what caught our eye. Very friendly, helpful staff (family business). They were busy,... More

The Glocke is a nice family style restaurant offering primarily German cuisine. Service is fine and the food quality is good. Would be good for family dining.
