My wife and I will be arriving in Rothenburg on June 17 by car. I read somewhere that you can't drive into the town at certain hours of the day, and even then, only if you have a hotel reservation (which we do). It looks like 7pm is the evening deadline. There's a chance we'll be arriving after that.
So my first question is, do these driving restrictions really exist?
Second, assuming the restrictions exist, and we arrive late, we will need to park at one of the lots outside the walls. I assume we can park overnight in these lots. Is that correct? We're planning stay for 2 nights. Are these lots secure enough that I don't need to worry about theft or vandalism to my car?
thanks for any help.
