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

The Rathaus is interesting from an American's point of view. The city government and council is key to understanding Rothenberg. Architecturally, the building is interesting and worth a visit.

The buildings in this popular square were quite grand and we were there at noon to hear and see the clock tower. It was very cool.

One of the most crowded places in the old town. If you make it before 9, you might be lucky, otherwise forget it... Nice buildings in the whole square.
