Wildbad Tagungsort Rothenburg O.D.Tbr., hotel in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Wildbad Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber is set in an old spa hotel from the 19th century. The hotel features a picturesque garden and terrace. Each of the bright rooms is decorated in a modern style.

The property is grand and unique: an old church (or monastery). The rooms feel almost like a dormitory, but are spacious and comfortable. Each room has a bathroom, as if someone put dropped a pre-fab bathroom in a dorm room. Rooms feel newly remodeled and very clean. With the church atmosphere comes a sense of calm. We took morning walks through the wooded area and sat along the river, just listening to the water and leaves. We explored the top floor which had a chapel and some explanations for the history of the hotel. The property is massive and would make for a great retreat or conference center. There is a kids' playroom. At the back of the property are a set of stairs (~3 flights) which lead up to the southern gate of Rothenburg. It's a 5-10 minute walk to the City Center, depending on how distracted you get along the way. Very convenient, although notably not within the city walls itself. Breakfast was simple, but good. For the price, we found this to be an extremely worthwhile stay.

FAQs about hotels in Rothenburg ob der Tauber




Out of a Fairytale

The half-timbered buildings, cobbled streets and brightly painted façades of medieval Rothenburg ob der Tauber wouldn’t be out of place in a fairytale. Several fantastical films have been set in this gem on the scenic Romantic Road, passing from Würzburg to Füssen via Bavaria’s most enchanting towns.

Uniquely designed gates allow access to the historic centre through walls partly covered with tiled roofs. Walking along the walls offers a different perspective of the town’s colourful flowers, step gables and towers. The town hall has the tallest tower, whose far-reaching views include the large Marktplatz, home of the Christmas market. The Christmas Museum is a year-round winter wonderland, as is the shop of Käthe Wohlfahrt, the internationally renowned German Christmas decoration producer.

On a different note, the Crime Museum houses medieval torture instruments including a ducking stool. Holy Blood and Last Supper altarpieces form the focal point of towering St James’ Church, a stop on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route.

In the River Tauber valley outside the centre are lush gardens, one containing Toppler Castle, a bizarre structure resembling a house on a tower. Also in the valley is a double-arched stone bridge.

The Rothenburg ob der Tauber accommodation on Booking.com includes traditional guest houses and family hotels with a spa and parking.

    From U.S.A. traveling father with two college age daughters.

    From U.S.A. traveling father with two college age daughters. Sights and scenery were terrific. Hotel Sonne owners were so very nice. Two days was plenty. We did not feel very welcome at most of the dinner or drink restaurants we visited unfortunately. Food was great, but felt like they didn't really want us there. Maybe it's just different service than we are used to in U.S. because of no expected tipping. Christmas museum was not worth the price.

    The town itself is really a great example of a medieval walled town. Getting to walk the walls, look inside the old churches, and eat/stay in local establishments adds to the experience. The topper for us was the added bonus of a festival occurring during our visit!

    Rothenburg ob der Tauber has met my expectations of cute, romantic well preserved medieval town , loved the historic museum of the torture , learned lot of things there , definitely loved that we stayed for couple nights unlike most of tourists come only for a day. We loved walking around the fortress where we took great photos and explored some of the insides too. Walking around is easy coz everything is very near. I can highly recommend Zur Holle Restaurant, lovely staff and food. Highly recommend this town to every travellers and especially those who love history. I would definitely come back again.

    Beautiful town and we were very happy we included it on our tour. Walking the wall was a great experience but you really don't have to walk the whole thing. We were there in the shoulder season, March, and pretty much nothing opened, shops & museums, until 2pm when the tour busses arrived. We specifically stayed overnight because of advice to be there without "hordes" of tourists and to see the town lit up. Problem was that there isn't any exterior lighting and we had the town pretty much to ourselves all morning. When the tour busses leave it turns into a ghost town. Shops close, which are all cheap tourist shops and not interesting anyway. Also, we had an extremely difficult time finding a place for dinner. There aren't many restaurants and because of that reservations are required. Happy we saw the town but spending six hours would have been enough.

    Old town is the place to be.

    Old town is the place to be. Beautiful architecture, history and it really feels like you are in Pinocchio’s fairytale village. Worth visiting and you don’t need more than 2-3 nights to fully explore it. And you can walk everywhere.

    We stayed three nights and spent 2-1/2 days in the old town.

    We stayed three nights and spent 2-1/2 days in the old town. We’ve been here many times but there’s plenty to see and do. We recommend the Rothenberger Handworker’s house tour, an ancient house unchanged since the 1700s, St Jakob’s church, the criminal museum, the night watchman’s tour, and walking the town’s perimeter walls and towers. These help illustrate medieval life and how people lived back then, and how good we have it today!

    Really comfortable room (bed, space, bathroom) and superb experience overall. Staff was attentive, helpful and sympathetic. Location can barely be any better as this is in the heart of altstadt. The hotel restaurant is incredible! I enjoyed the most delicious schäufelle in Germany there. I also definitely recommend the local sparkling wine. The apfel strudel was a work of art. Nice and polite staff there as well. The breakfast was good. Not hugely varietied but with all the basics for all tastes, with tasty local products as well.

    The hotel is well located inside the old town and convenientely near one of the exit towers to one of the several surrounding parking lots. Our family room was lovely, and breakfast also very good and varied with homemade jams and honey produced by the owners. We arrived quite later then expected as we were travelling from another city a bit far, but everything was well organized for our late check in. Staying in Rothenburg ob der Tauber is in itself just a wounderful experience that i would highly recomend.

    The staff was really attentive and accommodating. We were travelling with a dog, yet, we were allowed to have breakfast and lunch in the bar/library. The building itself is full of history and its medieval charm was not abolished instead of a more modern design. The hotel is located in the heart of Rothenburg ob der Tauber only 5 min walking distance away from Plönlein. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay!

    Of the six places we stayed on our trip to Germany, France, and Switzerland Christmas markets, this was our favorite. Right in the middle of everything, very cozy, and a great host. The breakfast was a pleasant surprise. The bummer was that the Christmas markets were closed, but Rothenburg ob der Tauber was everything we hoped for.
