Welcome to the forum. Train works.

Take a look at www.bahn.de, select English. From M to R takes 3 hours, and you can use the cheap Bayern ticket for this journey if you select local trains only.

I've nor checked to Gelsenkirchen, but that will also work fine by train.

It is quite a hike from Rothenburg to anywhere - that is the reason for the excellent historical preservation of that town, as it fell into insignificance due to not being on any major trade route. And what used to be major trade routes are now major rail and road corridors...

Thank you! We'll be in Munich for a few days, and I am keen to make a short trip to Rothenburg... Do you think it's reasonable to do a day trip if we are relying on the train (3 hours each way is a big cut into the day!) or would it be better to rent a car?
