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.

    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!

    This is a stunning walled medieval town!

    This is a stunning walled medieval town! You can walk around most of the wall - stork nests can be seen if you look carefully! Every street is beautiful with gift shops and cafes. The castle gardens are great to relax in and at the bottom you are rewarded with an amazing view down to the river Tauber.

    The staff was so hospitable, friendly and helpful. The wonderful service and exceptional attention by every staff member really made this a special stay. The hotel itself is beautiful. A true gem, and historical and artistic experience. Beautifully maintained and very clean. The included breakfast was amazing. We liked the hotel restaurant so much for dinner the first evening that we ate there again the second night, and both dinners were the best we’ve had in Germany. We loved our stay there and we’d love to go back.

The room was spacious, simple, but nicely decorated and welcoming. The bathroom was large, nice and very clean. The garage is part of the building and you can reach it also from the inside.

    The location was quite remote for walking around, but closeby to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The hotel has a long tradition which can be seen in the breakfast room. Our room was in a separate building and was very spacious. Breakfast was nice and is highly recommended. The cancellation policy (which we didn't use) is one of the best I have seen.
