Rothenburg ob der Tauber in Bavaria, Germany

I finally had the chance to visit for the second time the romantic town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This place is very famous for its well-preserved medieval old town. It is located in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia) in the state of Bavaria, Germany. Its history dates back around 970. In 1274 Rothenburg became a free imperial city.

This historical town is also called the Christmas capital of Germany. Due to this, it has become a destination of tourists from around the globe.

I wish to share more about this very interesting town in my future articles. Please also find below the snapshots I took during our visit last December 5, 2010

The Rathaus or the Town Hall on the left side and on the right side is the Ratsherrntrinkstube or the City Chancellors’ Tavern. It now houses the tourist information office of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

old but historical houses near the Marcusturm or Marcos Tower. You can see a huge clock on this tower.
