On a clear day this is probably the most photographed spot in all of Rothenburg. So quaint and medieval looking. It’s hard to get a clear shot since so many people are taking photos but be patient!

This is a very pretty spot in town but there are many pretty spots. The one difference we could tell is you can see two towers from the corner which is unique. Go early or at dusk for photos without the crowds!

The beautiful half-timbered building is located between two towers behind a small fountain at a fork in the road. The location makes it very picturesque and it is a great photo spot. Stop by for a quick selfie and then move on.

Just beautiful. It's just like the postcards. The old buildings and old world charm are just lovely. The food is beautiful and the people very friendly.

Has to be done, worth getting up for early to see it deserted . A very popular place and so easy to photograph .

So romantic, lovely architecture, lots of shops and places to eat. We stayed in the city center so we were up and out early before the hordes of tour groups arrived.
