    Classic, Romantic, and very German!


    We found this hotel on the Romantic Road website and didn't know what to expect. We were however very impressed by the hotel, and the great value for money. The have 5 different rooms, ranging from 50-65 Euro including an excellent breakfast in the morning. We stayed in the 65 Euro room as it was all that was left however our room was huge, and had a great view out the window. The hotel itself is goreous, it fits right in with the feeling that Rotherburg will give you, and is very romantic! We booked our hotel here:

    Unique Quality: The hotel and our room were very cosy, and has a very warm feel to it. The 4-post bed was a great touch, along with many unique decorations in our room.

    Directions: About a 2 minute walk north-west of the Marktplatz. A 15-20 minute walk west of the Bahnhof (train station)

Two Rothenburgs??

by karensaa

My daughter is travelling to Germany on a school exchange & "Rothenburg" is on the itinerary. I'm a bit confused because on my map of Germany there's another "Rothenburg" which is east of Dresden. It looks very small. Is it also a tourist attraction? Is "Rothenburg of der Tauber" often referred to as just "Rothenburg."

RE: Two Rothenburgs??

by globetrott

"Rothenburg OB der Tauber" is the official name, but most people will say Rothenburg.
There are diff. places with that name, BUT the most beautiful is the one above !

RE: Two Rothenburgs??

by JulesTwo

Oh she will enjoy it there. We went there as well when I studied in Germany.
Look at this website to learn all about it:
It is not the one that you are thinking of:
Located about 70 miles east of Heidelberg, this Bavarian town's full name is Rothenburg ob der Tauber, meaning "Red Castle on the Tauber River."

RE: Two Rothenburgs??

by abalada

There are even more (but even smaller) places that these two with this name.

Mostlikely it's "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" (or "Rothenburg o.d.T.") as this is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Germany.
11.314 inhabitants

Rothenburg/Oberlausitz (or Rothenburg/O.L.)
5.834 inhabitants
Not a big tourist attraction, but also no must-avoid.

- - -
Generally any addition to the name may point to the fact that there is more than one place with this name. Most famous:
Frankfurt am Main (mostly referred just as "Frankfurt")
659.928 inhabitants
Frankfurt (Oder)
63.748 inhabitants

There was a poster during the Football Worldcup last year who was so happy about finding a cheap hotel in "Frankfurt". Until he asked at a forum how far it was to the stadium. Over 600 km was slightly more than he expected.

"Ob der Tauber" it means Above the river Tauber, that flows in a small valley next to the townwalls, that are built about 30 meters above that river.
ob stands for "oberhalb"

RE: Two Rothenburgs?? (And Two Weimars??)

by karensaa

Thanks for the quick answers. I'm quite certain the tour will stopping in "Rothenburg ob der Tauber." I've also noticed there are 2 towns/cities named "Weimar." I'm assuming that Buchenwald is near the eastern most "Weimar." ???

RE: RE: Two Rothenburgs??

by abalada

It's the Weimar in Thuringia. The Weimar the first German Republic (1919-1933) is named after.
Democratic Germanys as referred when to distinguish between periods:
1919-1933 Weimar Republic (Weimarer Republik)
1949-1989 Bonn Republic (Bonner Republik)
since 1989 Berlin Republic (Berliner Republik)

Travel Tips for Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Walk the wall

by Nexus7

There are stairways that lead up to a walkway that walks you around the wall where you can peer. You can see it in this picture near the main entrance of the town. You don't have to go to this stairway. They are all around the wall. The amazing amount of history and self efficiency demonstrated from these isolated city-states. I also remember popping in and out of pubs with my dad. There are a lot of them here and I was just 17 so, I thought it was kind of neat.


by LoriPori

There sure is an abundance of Towers in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. They are called TURME UND TORE in German.
Let's start with the east entrance and the Roeder Tower or "Roederturm" (Pic 1).
Markusturm (Pic 2)
Weisserturm - White Tower (pic 3 )
Siebersturm (pic 4)
Kobolzeller Tor (pic 4)

There is also the

donations for the restoration of the walls

by globetrott

When you are walking on top of the medieval town-wall of Rothenburg ob der Tauber, you will see plenty of such inscriptions with the names of people who gave a certain amount of money as a donation for the restoration of the wall.
Some of these inscriptions have even added e.g. 15 meters ect., when their donations were big enough for the restoration of such a large part of the wall.
b.t.w.Hedwig-Courths Mahler was a popular german novelist, writing books about broken hearts and true love umong noble people...

a great entrance-gate behind St. Jakob church

by globetrott

Behind the church of St. Jakob you will see a large building, belonging to the church and when you get closer to it, you will see this beautifully decorated entrance-gate of that building.
When you enlarge my picture, you may see the fine details of these great sculptures.
I made a little picture-combination of the building and the best entrance-gate (the one of the tower). There is still another gate there that looks nice !

a great Weinstube next to Burgtor

by globetrott about Weinstube zum Pulverer

The Weinstube zum Pulverer is inside that building next to Burgtor. Here on my picture you may see that Burgtor is the highest of all towers in Rothenburg and closeby there was the place, where gunpowder was stored, so this is where the name "Pulverer" comes from. The "Altdeutsche Bier und Weinstube" is a great place, where you may taste the local wine and look around for the cosy atmosphere with all of the walls covered by precious wood, this Weinstube really looks like in the good old times.
