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.

Enormous historic property just brimming with character and gathering spaces. The staff was uniformly helpful and kind. Breakfast was incredible, tons of options and group seating in an elegant dining room. There are art installation and Lutheran pamphlets scattered about (the chapel and such are not accessible). Also a music festival was happening during our stay (we sometimes heard them and there was interesting lighting but was not loud at night). Close to the town by the stairs or with a car. Enjoyed the gardens and exploring the public spaces of the old building. Great atmosphere for telling ghost stories. Overall it was wonderful!

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.

    Beautiful town and we were very happy we included it on our...

    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.

    Its indeed a Fairytale town (fortified).

    Its indeed a Fairytale town (fortified). One night stay would be perfect to enjoy the old town´s colorful buildings and architecture with many towers standing high at every corner of the old town guarded by city walls (Day view and Night view of the old is must). It has a very rich heritage to tell as you stroll through the old town wondering why this was built and the purpose. This curiosity was sated by the night watchman´s 1hr guided tour that starts in Market square. The city wall is one of amazing structure which I had never seen before that runs through out the town like a fortress hiding behind is the beautiful buildings from medieval age still preserved with many reconstructed. There are many places to visit and for me the Rothenburg museum was the best to know about the history, going back in time (approx. 700 yrs). Plenty of restaurants and food was pretty good too, best snack "Schnee ball" I wish I would visit this town again on a full moon night :-)

    My family loves to visit Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

    My family loves to visit Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The town is very walkable and there are plenty of places to explore for a few days. Check out the museum's and take your time walking through the park outside the walls. If staying overnight take a trip with the nightwatchman. Rothenburg ob der Tauber is beautiful in Autumn and magical at Christmas.

    The hotel is lovely with excellent facilities - beautiful interior, bar, places to sit- if you are staying in the main hotel. Although you are of course welcome in the main hotel if staying in the annex, it is by no means the same experience. The breakfast was good (not the best we had while travelling through Germany, but still good). The sauna looked wonderful but in reality, much less convenient to access and enjoy if you are not staying in the main hotel.

    The hotel was great. It was away from the city and very quiet and peaceful, yet just a very short drive to the Rothenburg ob der Tauber old town. We ate in the restaurant for dinner. Food was good and reasonably priced. Breakfast was not included in the price, but reasonably priced and very good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Free parking. Internet was good and included.

    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!

    Staff were very friendly, but under staffed if your expecting a hotel experience, which the cost of a hotel room up the street was basically the same price as our room, which we reserved on Booking.com, but it was not what we received. We had to find another hotel but still were charged the full price. Breakfast served the equivalent of Tang for juice, weak coffee, but the plums and pears were delicious.
