By far the closest airport is Nuremberg, then Stuttgart, then Frankfurt, and then Memmingen is slightly closer than Munich. Those are straight line distances. By car, look at www.viamichelin.com , and by train www.bahn.com .

Nuremberg and Rothenburg ob der Tauber are even inside the same local public transport network, the VGN.

vgn.de/CFF6B06F-C0B4-11D7-AE44-00034709FE0C

Which makes for cheap transfers. Single ticket is EUR 9,50. A day ticket is EUR 15,60 and is good for up to 6 persons traveling together, albeit only 2 of them must be 18 years or older. If bought on a Saturday the day ticket is also good for Sunday.

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

From: NUE

To: Rothenburg ob der Tauber

and select as means of transport "only local transport".

The airport is served by U-Bahn (metro). And Rothenburg itself is the end point of a remote branch line. Thus a few changes are involved.

Just keep in mind that even though Rothenburg o.d. Tauber looks great, it is anything but a real German town--traditional or otherwise. It is lovely and worth seeing and taking photos, BUT it is totally a tourist enclave, about as close to being a Theme Park as you can get.
