Vieille Ville, Rothenburg

4.9
Experience the enchantment of medieval Germany in Rothenburg's Vieille Ville. Comprising part of the famous Romantic Road, the neighborhood is considered one of the country's most well-preserved medieval quarters. Its 13th-century architecture is enclosed by the old city wall. Tour the antique storefronts and medieval houses that line the cobblestone streets. Then climb the 61 m (200 ft) tall Roedertor tower to admire the city's signature red-roof skyline. Don't leave before trying the traditional Schneeballen, or sugar-covered fried dough. To visit Vieille Ville and other attractions in Rothenburg, use our Rothenburg trip builder app .
