The city hall of this picturesque, undeveloped village reflects its anachronistic spirit.

I have visited the Rothenburg Town Hall three times. Each visit has provided a memorable experience. It typifies a German town hall and captures an historic aura.

We really loved Rothenburg. It’s a unique, walled town. The town hall square is lovely. Lots of fun shops, bakeries and restaurants.
