Today I thought posting a typical German postcard motif: the town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber,
THE fairytale town in Germany.
Loved by many, visited by thousands of tourists from all around the world every year.
It is a magical little town, surrounded by its medieval wall. You can walk along this wall and almost completely walk around the old town center. This photo was taken from one of the many towers in the city wall.
Rothenburg has many nice shops, of course medieval buildings, museums, a beautiful market square, good wine and delicious food. Although it is a very touristy place it still has kept its German flair, especially in its crafts industry. You can get local food and wine, both very delicious and worth a try. One of the most fascinating places to visit is the "Medieval Crime Museum" (I wouldn't have had a chance in medieval Rothenburg with my red hair).
Did anyone of you who went to Germany visit Rothenburg? And if so, what did you think of the place?
