Ritterruestungen & Schwerter: Iron-armouries for sale

This shop in Herrengasse 12 was the best one that I saw in Rothenburg, where you may buy an iron armoury. B.t.w. the one on my picture is 1290 Euros, and I am not even sure that this is a confortable one...

The shop is open Monday-Friday :
09.00a.m.-12.00noon + 02.00p.m.-06.00p.m.
Saturday 09.00a.m. - 04.00p.m.
and even on sunday : 11.00a.m. - 04.00p.m.

What to buy: They have quite a good choice of iron amouries, similar shop I saw so far only in Prague.

What to pay: 1290 Euros for the big iron armouy on my picture.

Address: Herrengasse 12

Directions: Herrengasse 12 - this is just opposite of Hotel Eisenhut

Terracotta Replicas of Rothenburg-houses - Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Terracotta Replicas of Rothenburg-houses

Various shops all over Rothenburg: Terracotta Replicas of the lovely houses

Plenty of shops all over Rothenburg offer such buildings and , because so many tourists from Japan and USA will come to Rothenburg, you may also get your purchase sent home by mail.

What to buy: When you click on my picture, you may see a big choice of small replicas of the famous buildings of Rothenburg ob der Tauber . Most of these houses may be lighted from inside and make a great decoration at home.

What to pay: The price depends of course on the size and I saw nice ones alraedy for around 40 Euros.

Address: D-91541 Rothenburg/Untere Schmiedgasse

Directions: I saw this shop in Untere Schmiedgasse, opposite of Konditorei Striffler.

Schneeballen - a traditional desert in Rothenburg - Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Schneeballen - a traditional desert in Rothenburg

Konditorei Striffler: Schneeballen / Snowballs

Konditorei Striffler was the 1st bakery in Rothenburg, that started to produce these cakes back in the year 1925. Snowballs are still produced freshly every day there. BUT be careful, before buying a large number of them, they are really hard and need some tricks to be eaten. I had one with just cinnemon and sugar, and it was quite hard work to break out smaller parts, I could eat. Those snowballs, covered with chocolate will get you terribly sticky fingers...

What to buy: Schneeballen (Snowballs) are a traditional desert of the area and you may see them in almost any Konditorei / Confectionery in Rothenburg ob der Tauber . The principal of such a snowball are wide stripes of a special - quite hard dough consisting of plenty of eggs, cream and plum-brandy - and many of such stripes will be gathered in the shape of a snowball before baking them. Click on my link below and learn more about it on the webpage of that Konditorei Striffler, you may even order Schneeballen there online...

What to pay: Schneeballen are about 1,80 Euro each for the size on my picture

Address: D-91541 Rothenburg Untere Schmiedgasse 1

Directions: Untere Schmiedgasse is in a distance of 200 meters from Marktplatz, when you walk to Siebersturm (the towngate you may see on almost every postcard) See also the map on the webpage of Konditorei Stiffler !
