  • I love this garden as its close to my hotel so for my two night stay at Rothenburg, I would take a walk through the garden for the peace at dusk, watch the happy dogs on their walk, admire the greener...  more »
  • It is located at the western end of the old city park. Spring Flower to plant beautiful flowers and the tourists take a break. You can also overlook the old town because outside of the walls surrounding the old town here, a little bit away. Park nor a shop, such as food, especially without playground equipment.

  • Leaving the country by crossing the ancient door in the wall you get to these gardens, but not out of the ordinary, a beautiful environment and pleasant panoramic views which can be enjoyed from the extreme edge. Valid to make a walk fast.

  • 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.
