Rothenburg ob der Tauber


This last weekend we did a little two day trip to Rothenburg ob der Tauber with another eDOT family. This was an old walled city that has origins dating back to the 900’s. In the war (WWII for non-Europeans), 40% of the city was bombed but due to a lot of people’s generosity they have rebuilt the city. Even our German friends think that this is a just a beautiful place to visit and I have to agree.

If you do visit this town, you have to go on the Night Watchman tour. He was an excellent tour guide with a great way of telling you the town’s history.

  1. This is one of our favorite German cities! We made a family trip to Germany several years ago and just rented a van and drove around for 2 weeks… My in-laws liked Rottenburg ob der Tauber so much they spent the better part of a week there on their next Germany trip!

  2. We found it beautiful too. There were some really spectacular buildings there. We’d be glad to take anyone that comes to visit to this place as its only about 3 hours away (unless there’s construction or an accident on the Autobahn).
