  • Here stood the former castle on top of a rock with beautiful views. It is especially for the purpose that you visit the Burggarten.

  • When the morning, fewer people is recommended. Places like the nose of Rothenburg, so is excellent. A beautiful flower garden is impressive.

  • It's very nice to walk in this part of the city and take pictures from one of the nicest spots of it. We suggest to walk down to watch the grapes fields and take a look at the medieval bridge  more »

  • It was warm when we visited Rothenburg. This place has many trees. It is nice with kids.
  • Just a peaceful and lovely place to go and read a book, watch the wind blows.. and just be
  • Nice garden with great view.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Rothenburg

Consider lodging in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast located in the city's Old Town. Lodging outside the walls may save a few dollars, however. Many lodging options are close enough to offer access to city sites on foot.
