  • Excellent collection of arms and armor, art, and a beautiful Judaica collection.
  • With a very well historic collected. You can spend a lot of time here easily.
  • Interesting collections (countless weapons), smiling employees, but presentation that leaves to be desired. It would be interesting that there are links between each room instead of only being pulled into a room with no preamble and wondered what it is. (Ah! this is weapons. furniture. musical instruments here here...) It was difficult to find in the Museum. One of the exhibits (the one on Martin Luther) was no description in English.

  • The Museum is a little hidden. Otherwise, it is very big, but well organized with its many objects. As a Museum, you should go often, because there's always special exhibitions.

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.
