I happened to arrive in Rothenburg's town square about 5 minutes before the hour. So I waited for the hour to strike. The experience is like an oversized cuckoo clock doing its thing on the hour. Yawn!! If you happen to be in the square...More

We stopped to find out about guided tours and thoroughly enjoyed both tours we took; the city tour and the nightwatchman tour. Both tours were very well executed and both guides spoke great English. The ladies at the tourist info were very helpful and polite.
