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.

    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.

    There are many people that fleet through Rothenburg on a day...

    There are many people that fleet through Rothenburg on a day tour but it does help to have a couple of days to walk around the outskirts of the city wall, to truly appreciate the place. We stumbled upon a little playground outside the city walls and it was the best time we had. There are some good restaurants but do read the reviews; Michaelango was a win as was the Taj Mahal. The restaurants and some shops do seem to indicate a preference for cash over card. It will also be wise to plan where to park beforehand and to understand the charges of parking within the city walls. Also, if you drive within the city walls, be prepared for narrow cobbled streets and driving through ancient gateways.

    This was our second stay at the hotel and booked it a second time because of our previous experience. The rooms are a little smaller than average, but that was expected in the center of old town Rothenburg. The location was excellent and near the Market Square. Parking was available in a secure lot. The beer garden associated with the hotel is probably the best in town, and the restaurant was excellent - both breakfast and dinner. Highly recommended.

    The location is excellent, inside the historic walls. The building has a certain charm, and even if old, it is in a very good shape. 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. Very good breakfast, unlike other hotels in Germany. Very friendly and helpfull staff.

    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.

    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.
