  • This is a great garden area to take a leisurely walk. Often there will be someone playing music in the garden and you can just relax on a bench and listen. Be sure to check out the gardener's cottage. 
  • This visit is mandatory. The garden is beautiful! Also you can see the horizon and the Valley. You can also have views of the city lights at night. Highly recommended to visit it both day and night.

  • In the summer, in August, at sunset are trapped in this garden! As he is handsome and tidy! How good to sit in silence and watch as the sun sets over the city walls.

  • My wife and I love visiting Rothenburg ob der Tauber often. The Burggarten is a part of the location that simply can not be missed. I've been able to take some amazing pictures in the location. The tower near the garden has some awesome history to it, but I won't tell you here as it's best you hear it from the Nightwatchman's tour that happens often in Rothenburg. The last time we visited the garden, there was a market happening there with many local vendors who had some pretty nice products for sale. And, if you walk to the edge of the garden, you get an amazing view of the countryside spread below you. It is breathtaking. Check it out for yourself.
  • Calm garden. You can take a rest walking slowly.
  • This place offers a wonderful view of the valley.
  • Looking over country-side view from small garden. It was quite nice.
  • A small but beautiful park. Great place to rest after a walk through the city.
