Best places to go and to do in Rothenburg

Most of the visitors here are daytime visitors; while a mere few opt on staying over for a day or two. In fact, if you actually want to avoid the day-time crowd, you should choose staying over. A favorite of many, is to simply take a walk and admire the views, the town is small and easy to stroll on your own. The Tourist Information office (Marktplatz 2) organizes private and group walks around the town. The famous, almost daily Night Watchman’s Tour too is an interesting one, wherein the watchman jokes like a medieval Jerry Seinfeld as he stokes his lamp and takes tourists on his rounds, all the while telling slice-of-gritty-life tales. Climbing the Town Hall tower gives the best view of the town and surrounding countryside.

Encompassing a large number of museums, churches and galleries - Medieval Crime and Punishment Museum, St. Jakob’s Church, German Christmas Museum, Reichsstadtmuseum, Lutheran parish church, Rathausturm, St-Peter-und-Pauls-Kirche  take you back in time to relive the medieval times. Then there is the Alt-Rothenburger Handwerkerhaus, where numerous artisans - including coopers, weavers, cobblers and potters – have their workshops, so you could test your creativity here!
