On our first visit to Rothenburg we didn't visit the Reichsstadt. There were so many other things to do we just didn't take the time. This time we made sure to visit and not only were we sorry we didn't visit the first time, we were sorry we didn't allow enough time this trip.
Three things I wish I knew before I visited: 1) The Reichsstadtmuseum collection is vast and incredibly interesting. If you enjoy history at all (and if you're in Rothenburg, you probably do) you'll enjoy this museum. Don't pass it by. 2) The museum's hours. We didn't pay enough attention and the staff had to call time on us. Go earlier in the day and you'll be able to take your time and enjoy it. 3) Buy the photo pass. Just do it. It's only a few additional euro and it will be worth it. Trust me. We didn't buy the pass and several times we wished we had. Sooo many unique and interesting items and artwork! (And yes, they are watching!) (In lieu of the photo pass, we did purchase the museum's catalog, but it is only in German and doesn't encompass nearly the full scope of what you see within the museum.Buy the pass!)
