Rothenburg is known for much more than its market, with its famous Medieval houses and walls and gate, its museums (Christmas, medieval weapons and the vaults), the famous clock tower, and of course the all-year Christmas store which probably outperforms the market itself. It really is impossible to visit the shop without buying something, and its not cheap but they will ship items that are fragile. We enjoyed a toasted cheese/wurst baguette, another Gluhwein (you can never drink enough of it and it changes with each market), and a Schneeball (the traditionally Rothenbrug fried pastries twisted into a ball shape and filled with almond paste, chocolate or nuts and coated in sugar or icing). We joked about the need to walk off the fattening foods found at the markets and went for a long walk around the walls to work it off.

Great market. Warm people. Good food. Great atmosphere. Rich city. Old buildings, didn't get bombed in the war so a lot is original.
