  • If you don't have a good physical fitness and is claustrophobic, don't go, especially in the summer. It's cramped and stuffy. Use a clothes and comfortable shoes. The view is beautiful, but if you don't have much time to visit the city, give preference to walk and get lost in the medieval streets, the houses and the gardens are beautiful.

  • Rothenburg is a wonderful, cute, fairy town. Feeling-if you find yourself in a fairy tale. Would definitely choose a time for his visit. In the village there is a small museum where you can learn more about its history, and I think, after seeing it, you will get a better idea of the magic city. Very interesting and informative!

  • From the top of this tower is the best place to delete with the beauty of the city. You will not get tired to look and discover something new every time I turn the sight. Stunning.

  • The Town hall is in the middle of the town, Got there about 4:30pm and the building look great in the day but at night it is the best. Best to go to this town before sunset the views is so beautiful.
  • Its a beautiful and Historic place... I liked it very much :) :) :) Don't miss this place if you come to Germany...
  • Don't miss the metal measuring rods of Rothenburg o.d.T. right next to the gate.
  • A series of reconstructions of the interiors and of medieval costumes at the time of the "Meistertrunk". Some news are interesting, but the environments themselves are not anything extraordinary. In the basement there are three small cells.

  • Nice Museum! Tells a lot about the history of the city during the 30 year war. Absolutely recommended!
