Experience the enchantment of medieval Germany in Rothenburg's Old Town. Comprising part of the famous Romantic Road, the neighborhood is considered one of the country's most well-preserved medieval quarters. Its 13th-century architecture is enclosed by the old city wall. Tour the antique storefronts and medieval houses that line the cobblestone streets. Then climb the 61 m (200 ft) tall Roedertor tower to admire the city's signature red-roof skyline. Don't leave before trying the traditional Schneeballen, or sugar-covered fried dough.
