Medieval Heart of Germany
An old imperial city, Rothenburg is the main tourist stop on the scenic Romantic Road of Bavaria. It's about halfway between Frankfurt and Munich. Known for a medieval center seemingly unblemished by the passage of time, Rothenburg is encircled by a largely intact 14th-century town wall. Reaching its apex of prosperity in the 15th century as a free city, Rothenburg is now a small town and a big tourist attraction. This medieval jewel of architecture is intersected by cobbled streets and packed with well-preserved old buildings. The nation's strict preservation laws keep them that way, and keep the city firmly entrenched on many vacation itineraries. Though it may sometimes seem like a veritable medieval theme park, Rothenburg also boasts numerous modern attractions, including shops, restaurants, and museums. Add Rothenburg and other destinations to your itinerary using our Germany travel itinerary planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
