Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber
This charming town is located in Bavaria, along the famous Romantic Road right between Frankfurt and Munich. The best way to reach Rothenburg is by train, arriving at Rothenburg ob der Tauber station.
The medieval center of Rothenburg is a popular destination, and the area of Plonlein is a charming place in which to enjoy a stroll among the beautiful architecture and cobble-stone streets. Just around the corner from the Plonlein is the Market Square, which is essentially the center of Rothenburg, featuring the area’s urban cafes, shops, and attractions like the Church of St Jacob and the art masterpieces found inside.
Visitors with strong stomachs or a sensibility for the strange and disturbing might enjoy a visit to the Medieval Crime and Punishment Museum, which is also just a short distance from the Market Square.
The Romantic Road leads to many other small cities in Bavaria, cities that seem to have stood the test of time to preserve the unique charm of the medieval times.
