Tilman Riemenschneider, hotel in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

This traditional, 16th-century hotel offers Franconian food, a fitness area and country-style rooms. It stands in the center of Rothenburg, a 2-minute walk from the St. Jakob church.

Location is fantastic! Steps away from shops and town center. Quick and efficient check in. Room and bathroom sparkling clean. Bathroom is very modern. Room furniture is charming. Breakfast is great with lots of delicious fresh breads, eggs, bacon, salami, fresh fruits, cheese, spreads. Night front desk person was so nice and accommodating. We sat in the lobby at night playing Uno and ordered some wine and beer. The night desk gentleman made sure we got our drinks and were comfortable playing cards. Front desk held our luggage after check out so we could have a few more hours in the lovely town. So glad we stayed overnight in the beautiful town.

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.

What Guests Said About Rothenburg ob der Tauber:

    We loved the culture and history.

    We loved the culture and history. We also loved the amazing little shops. If you’re able, I highly recommend walking the tower wall. The Townhall stair climb is a bit much, but it is definitely worth the view. For casual eating, try and find a little sausage store and get a bratwurst to go. You will save a lot of money and experience a great tasting treat. The sweet treat candy shop is super. The owner/Candy maker is amazing.

    Rothenburg inside the city walls is like stepping into a storybook. If you could dream up the quintessential German town, this would be it! The town is perfect for walking, and if you stay inside the walls, you can sneak back to the room easily if you forgot something. Plenty of bakeries and sandwich shops. There are also plenty of sit down restaurants. Our favorite places to explore are the city walls, the Berggarten on the western end of the city, St. Jacob's church, the Kathe Wolfhart Christmas store, the Medeival crime and punnishment museum, the town hall tower, and the Night Watchman's tour. My family of six with kids from 11-18 had lots of fun! Keep in mind: most places accept only cash, and driving a vehicle down the cobblestone streets and narrow streetways is not easy!

    BEAUTIFUL! An amazing Medieval town.

    BEAUTIFUL! An amazing Medieval town. It brought to life so many history books I have read. Very "real" and not over hyped with commercial tourist crap (although plenty of souvenir stores). Lots of great places to sit and enjoy local beer or wine, and coffee. Lots of pretty garden patios in charming hotels.

    Such a delightful old part of the town.

    Such a delightful old part of the town. Great views, a spectacular wall to walk on and fabulous restaurants and eating places. Very welcoming. We would strongly recommend the free night walking tour by the night watchman starting from the town square, humorous and informative and not too late to spoil dinner.

    Wildbad is a wonderful place.

    Wildbad is a wonderful place. We hadn’t realised that it is a religious retreat house (Lutheran Evangelist) but that gave it an added feeling of peace. It is a beautiful old mansion right outside the town walls of Rothenburg o.d. Tauber (the river flows by the mansion) and one can walk into the centre of this beautiful medieval town in about ten minutes. The rooms are large (ours had a balcony) and have no TVs but this was an advantage for us!! The breakfast was the best we’ve seen, served in a magnificent dining hall. All the staff were wonderful and friendly. Our ambition is to return ASAP

    I advise you to visit Plonlein, Stadtmauer (fortress wall) and all the gates, Church of St. James and altar by Tilman Riemenschneider upstairs, town hall, the museum and and observation place inside, Baumeisterhaus, Topplerschlösschen, Alt-Rothenburger Handwerkerhaus, Doppelbrücke. The city is medieval and fairy-tale, as if you were in the atmosphere of the "Lord of the Rings"

    Very good traditional German guesthouse right in the centre of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, about 900 metres from the railway station. It is in one of those cute, old half-timbered houses. The owner was friendly and upgraded me to a double room. The room was basic but very clean. Breakfast was also good with varieties of bread, cheese, cold cuts, yoghurt, fruit and berries. As a bonus, there was a small general store downstairs, owned by the same family, and a very good kebab place next door.

    Best place to halt when in Rothenburg o d T. The owner is sweet and helpful. Rooms are super clean and the hotel serves breakfast (for 10€ pp). Breakfast is worth that money I would say. The location is perfect ( 10 - 12 mins) to Markplatz.
