  • Beautiful garden with great views of the town from far. Loved this place to take some pictures. Great spot for families as well  more »
  • When I visited this place I felt like I was in a fairy tale, it is perfect. It has an incredible view.  more »
  • Walking through the western gates of the walled city of Rothenburg, you find yourself wandering into the Burggarten. like the rest of the city, this park area sits high above the river and puts you outside the wall for some lovely views of the countryside as well as the southern portion of the city. Back in the day (way way back) this part had its own structures that have mostly been lost to time. in their place are large trees that provide a lot of shady spaces and benches to walk about and sit and relax. Definitely worth checking out as part of your stop in Rothenburg.
  • So pretty. Perfect place to walk, and a little quieter than the main town.
