Three days in Rothenburg

Rothenburg Ploenlein

While at a Family reunion in Lower Franconia, we did a side trip to Rothenburg for a friends destination wedding. Arriving by train, we checked into a darling medieval B&B in the center of town from walking distance to the Marktplatz. We had an amazing time. I hope you enjoy my photos

Rothenburg is in the region of Franconia, a part of Bavaria. Most of the buildings were in place by 1400. The city was established in 1142, but destroyed in 1356. Two pompous gates can still be seen, the Markus Tower and the White Tower. In the center city I saw a few Patrizier houses, where the Gilded residents used to live.

I highly recommend to take the Night Watchman tour with a guy name Hans-Georg Baumgartner. He lights his lamp and takes tourists on his rounds explaining medieval life in a jokingly way. The meeting place is 8 pm at the Marktplatz www.Nightwatchman.de. Adults 8 Euro, children 4 Euro

For those who cannot travel right now, I found his tour on YouTube below:

I recommend getting a guide to explore this historic town. You can order your copy below:

I have been living half of my life in Germany, then US, and traveling since then. My passion is cooking, painting and glass mosaic art. I try to re-create recipes I grew up with, or I tasted while traveling in Europe.
