Good german food

The place is warming, the food is good, and the beer is tasty. I would highly recommend if you are visiting this magical town and get hungry meanwhile.

We went to this restaurant for a dinner in a cold evening of December and we found exactly what we expected: a wonderful pork shank and a tasty Weissbier. We also tried an excellent pasta with cheese (Spatzle). The place was very beautiful and the waitress was very kind and spoke English fluently. We spent a wonderful evening there.

Nice selection of German food. Highly recommend the potato soup! The Roter Hahn was still serving dinner when many other restaurants had finished. The servers were friendly. The location is excellent right in downtown Rothenburg.

Can't really share the same sentiments about the service as we saw only two waitress serving more than half filled crowd. But service... More
