Rothenburg and the Romantic Road

A Fantastic Day in the Middle Ages

,,,,Rothenburg … the famous walled city, frozen in time … it is every bit as amazing it as you have always heard! Let us take you to Rothenburg for the day and transport you into the feudal world of the middle ages. Spared from destruction during the 30 Years War (a great story we will tell you all about), the heart of Rothenburg has stayed pretty much the same ever since. Thus, we can visit a town with its defensive walls still entirely intact, complete with towers and elevated walkways. Rothenburg is full of winding lanes and half-timbered houses. We show you this fantastic city and cover its rich history – it was once one of the 10 largest cities in the entire Holy Roman Empire!

On top of all of this, Rothenburg is also known as the Christmas Capital. It is home to the Käthe Wohlfahrt chain of Christmas stores and their fantastic Christmas Museum – a visit not to be missed for any fan of Christmas.

To get to Rothenburg we drive along a stretch of the famous Romantic Road, which gets its name from the well-preserved medieval trading route with medieval  towns and castles along its way. There is an optional stop at  Harburg Castle, pretty much unchanged since the 15th century. We always stop for coffee in pretty Dinkelbühl which is also a completely walled town with a distinctly different story, architectural look and feel than Rothenburg.

The photos below were taken during past tours. The galleries for Rothenburg, the Romantic Road (incl. Dinkelsbühl) and the Tour Options (Harburg Castle) show how wonderful Rothenburg and the Romantic Road are!
