  • Out the "back" gate we found this beautiful green space, overlooking the river. There was a musician playing out there which added to the experience.  more »

  • This spot is hidden several blocks off of the main city square. It is definitely worth finding and has some wonderful views. I would recommend a later in the afternoon visit so you can enjoy the beaut...  more »

  • 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.
