The moment you cross the city walls through one of the stone arches you step back in history. Let the stream of tourists carry you along.
Follow the narrow winding cobbled streets lined with charming half-timbered houses.
Admire the beautiful gothic, renaissance and baroque buildings ornamented with unusual architectural details.
Climb the city walls surrounding the Old Town, from which you will have a great view over the Tauber valley and the town itself.
Enjoy the atmosphere of Christmas (even in the middle of summer) in Kathe Wohlfahrts Christmas village.
Experience the moments of horror ( surprise? amusement?) in the museum of crime.
Eat a schneeball - a doughnut-like pastry which is a local speciality.
Join the Night Watchman tour which will reveal many town's secrets to you, like the one about storage rooms in the attics, where the citizens were obliged to store food in case of the town's siege.
As you can see Rothenburg has a lot to offer.
