Well worth a stay of at least two nights. Unfortunately those who either day trip in, just stay one night, miss out on so much that the town and the environs have to offer. The hotels, the restaurants and the picturesque town are well worth...More

Rothenberg a.d. Tauber is like Disney World without Mickey Mouse. It's really that nice. And it's pretty much real. There was a lot of reconstruction. The wall walk is particularly fun, but you don't need to walk to the far side of town. The wall...More

This walled city is worth the visit. Just to sit at a little cafe and watch the people is worth the trip.

This was our favorite stop in driving the Romantic Road. Old Town hosts several festivals during the year. During our stay we enjoyed the Reichsstadt-Festtage held the first week in September each year. Old town is closed to vehicular traffic during the day and there...More

This is such an interesting town with so much to see. I would encourage any visitor to plan a couple of days, and enjoy the sites, the shopping and food.

Beautiful and fascinating to wander around. Not all of it is authentic but it has been done very well. Lovely buildings, market square, and city walls from which there are great views. Avoid some of the souvenir shops - bit pricey. But lots of cafes...More

You'll love walking around this place. Take your time and enjoy. Don't be a tourist stop and talk to people. Show them you're interested in them and they will tell you things that will make your good trip a great trip.

Rothenburg, to be precise felt like a fairy tale medieval age town surrounded by Fortress walls and in the town were small houses dating back to centuries. The Medieval festival was the cherry on top, which isn't merely a sales gathering but a show of...More

This is the one town that you must visit when in Bavaria/Germany! Allow for a leisurely one day's visit strolling through the cobblestone streets and viewing the quaint buildings and other landmark attractions some of which are really medieval. Lots to shop and eat too...More

The Palace in Wurzburg is very impressive, plus it has a very ornate side chapel. The Castle is a very long climb for your buck. The town is a regular town with a nice bridge and some photo ops. Rothenburg ob der Tauber... More
