We spent a night in Rothenburg ob der Tauber (not to be confused with other Rothenburgs in Germany) to continue our Christmas Market extravaganza.
Rothenburg is so darn cute it seems to perfect to be real. With its cobble-stone streets and pretty, colorful architecture, it looks more like a movie set than an actual place. This charming medieval walled town is a favorite among tourists, especially during the Christmas Season.
K and I arrived in mid-afternoon and strolled around the Christmas Market in Market Square (our fourth of the trip). We indulged in more glühwein (warmed mulled wine) along with crepes filled with Nutella and banana—a popular choice among us market-goers.
We also walked the rampart wall that surrounds Rothenburg. This covered, narrow walk offers great views and an interesting perspective on what it was like when the wall was actually used to protect the city from siege.
Notable Eats in Rothenburg
Bürgerkeller. A cellar restaurant serving local cuisine with a pleasant host. Try the Wiener Schnitzel. It will not disappoint. (Bürgerkeller: Herrngasse 24)
P.S. They don’t serve burgers. Bürger means citizen/townsman.
Our visit to Rothenburg was short…but enjoyable.
