Pension Fuchsmuehle
Ranked #2 of 34 Rothenburg B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 27, 2012

We loved this place, and would certainly stay there again.

It is ideally positioned in the quiet and very pretty Tauber valley just below the walls of Rothenburg. It's just a 12-minute walk up to the town, over a little covered bridge and through a meadow, then up a steep but paved path. The inn's owners even offer you a flashlight if you're going to be returning from the town in the dark!

Breakfast was splendid: delectable fresh-made coffee, with a wholespread spread of meats, cheeses, cereals, yoghurts, jams, and bread.

We stayed here on the first night of an extended driving tour of Germany, Austria and Italy, The Pension is a wonderful little hotel and while it was a little hard to find it is in a beautiful location. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. It is a rather steep climb up to the city but that just made the whole experience that much better. Rothenberg is a really beautiful little city and has a really cool charm about it. It was a great way to start our vacation and we definitely would recommend it and would surely stay here again.

Pros: Everything. Clean, comfortable, modern, huge beds and spacious bedrooms, very friendly and cordial staff. Free wi-fi, free parking. Fantastic situation, in the middle of the woods but just 10 min away from the city.

Cons: None. But if I had to say something, maybe it's a bit difficult to find - we got lost because the street is not very well signed. Nothing that couldn't be solved introducing the coordinates in our GPS, though.

Overall: I'd totally recommend it and certainly would repeat if I return to Rothenburg.

We knew that this B&B was a bit outside the city when we booked it. So we were a little worried about how far it would be from city center. We took a taxi and were pleasantly surprised when we were taken down the hill outside the wall to an absolutely charming traditional mill converted into a B&B. I honestly never expected to stay in such a unique place for such a great price. You had to admire the renovation work of the mill. Converting it into rooms was clearly done out of a labor of love and the rooms are surprisingly modern.

Breakfast was great! Some of the eggs were from the chickens grazing just outside the door and it was a wonderful spread of meats, cheeses, juices, coffee, and eggs. The host was gracious and discussed life in Germany with us as he served breakfast and gave us a taste of what modern life was like in this medieval town.

Of course, the big decision is do you want to be outside the city? If you are young and fit, walking up the scenic path to town will be no problem, but Rothenburg, as most medieval fortified cities, is on a hill and the path winds up this pretty steep hill. My husband and I walked it no problem, but it does take 15-20 minutes.

Room Tip: The top floor has a suite with 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom that is a great value for families.

Our family of five had a double and a triple room in this charming family run establishment. It is very accessible to historic Rothenburg, with a path (rather steep, but fun) up the hill from the Tauber River valley. The accomodations are very modern in this working mill (the owner told us the mill now generates electricity - enough for 3 or 4 homes - rather than grinding grain) and it has a great family feel. The breakfast costs 7 Euros, but it is well worth it, with a wide selection and fresh local offerings. Overall this quiet, quaint, welcoming inn is a great find. Our only regret was that we could only stay one night.

This was our favourite place we stayed during our trip around Europe. We had a lovely bedroom with a window looking out onto the working mill and a bathroom plus plenty of shelving inside. The breakfast was 7 euros but well worth it for the lovely fresh produce - eggs boiled on demand, cold meats, cheese, yoghurt, cereal, fruit, and fresh bread. The owner was very friendly. We really enjoyed walking through the bush up the hill into the town each day and also to the beergarden down the road surrounded by bush and next to a river. The path is a bit too steep for luggage so probably best to catch a taxi when you are leaving/arriving - I think it cost us around 10 euros. A beautiful B&B in a beautiful town.

The hotel is in working mill building - that's very cool! Friendly family atmosphere, spacious and clean rooms with wooden finish. Location is great since it is out of city walls with genuine landscape, view on Tauber and walking path uphill to inner city which gives quite special impression of the city.
