This is quintessential Bavaria. Half timber houses at their best. There's plenty of shops and restaurants around this area too.

Great number of small shops up to this part of town, don’t miss the small castle garden that you can find by going down one of the tiny streets, you have a fantastic view of the area.

On a clear day this is probably the most photographed spot in all of Rothenburg. So quaint and medieval looking. It’s hard to get a clear shot since so many people are taking photos but be patient!

This is a very pretty spot in town but there are many pretty spots. The one difference we could tell is you can see two towers from the corner which is unique. Go early or at dusk for photos without the crowds!

The beautiful half-timbered building is located between two towers behind a small fountain at a fork in the road. The location makes it very picturesque and it is a great photo spot. Stop by for a quick selfie and then move on.

Probably one of the most photographed corners in germany. It is the most famous building in Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Just beautiful. It's just like the postcards. The old buildings and old world charm are just lovely. The food is beautiful and the people very friendly.

This place is so unique it's amazing. The shops are traditional, the food is exquisite and the location is stunning. One of only three walled cities still intact in Germany and well worth a visit. The market square house opens it's windows as the clocks...More
