More about Hotel Roter Hahn


by keeweechic about Hotel Roter Adler

Hotel Roter Adler is in the old town part of Innsbruck, tucked away in a little corner. Not a very big hotel but comfortable enough. The elevator though was real tiny. Very handy to wandering about the town.

Friendly Service-Great Beer!

by klasher about Hotel/Restaurant Roter Hahn

We didn't eat, just drank beer. The waitress was very accomodating even though we were not eating dinner. We went in the afternoon while it was raining, so there were very few customers. Built in 1380


by Sjalen about Roter Hahn

This place has a great location in the centre, and is therefore probably terribly crowded in summer (plenty of Japanese even when we were there). It is also a hotel and was once famous for being the home of the Mayor who managed to save the city through wine drinking (see the Ratsherrtrinkstube tip). The food is perfectly OK (apart from the boring pasta but there is another veggie alternative) even if no culinary masterpieces. I had a very nice fish and they also did a decent (and huge plateful) chili con carne. Good German beer of course and service is not flexible as regards "out of the menu" requests, but comes with a smile. at least off season :))) Children welcome. My baked fish was nice.

Mexico - the German Way

by Johnscarroll about Cafe Pacifico

After a week in Germany, I could not stomach another night of schnitzel. So, on a Monday (which at home usually means Mexican food) while strolling the back alleys of this old German town, I happened upon a Mexican restaurant at the Hotel Roter Hahn. Terrific! Let's see how the German's do Mexican food. In fact, it was the first Mexican restaurant I had seen. I had the chicken fajitas, and my partner had a chicken burrito. They were both good, though a little different from Mexican food in the US - and ALOT different from real Mexican food in Mexico. However, it was tasty and worth the ridiculously low price. One problem though - stay away from the guacamole. It was horrible. It just tasted like green slime. If was so overprocessed (it obvously came straight out of a refrigerated container) and over spiced that it tasted nothing like avocados.

The story of the brave Major Nusch who saved..

by Maria250

"..Rothenburg from destruction in 1631"

On every first weekend of June all the citizens of Rothenburg and its visitors celebrate the story of Maj. Nusch from the Thirty Years War when Rothenburg was taken by imperial Troops under Gen. Tilly. The Gen. promised mercy if someone would be able to empty a huge tank with wine. Maj. Nusch took the challenge and made it.
Now hundreds of locals dress up in historical costumes, march through the old town leading to the Military camp, and celebrate the story of the brave Maj. Nusch. The parade then ends with a big party, beer and folklore music (also in front of the Town Hall).

"The Town Hall"

It's a very imposing building which was built about 1572 in different architectur styles. The front part is built in renaissance style, and (at the side of Herrengasse) is the Gothic part built which dates back from 1250 to 1400.

"This Old Town's alley.." lined by houses built in about 1600 with beautiful facades. These mansions once belonged to Patrician families, and wealthy craftmen. The so called "Greifen" was back then owned by Maj. Toppler. Maj.Nusch back then lived in today's "Roter Hahn".

Local bus ride


We will be coming to Rothenburg by train. Is there a local bus transportation from the train station to the town center? Thank you for any suggestions.

Re: Local bus ride

by leics

It only takes about 10 minutes to walk from the railway station to the centre of Rothenburg.

But you could take a taxi if you wanted (there was certainly one waiting at the station when I visited, although I don't know if that's usual).

There are buses, of course, but I didn't see any of them coming into the town centre whilst I was there.

bus shuttle service from the train into the town center is very infrequent. there are taxis at the train station which take just a few minutes and a few euros to get to the tourisic center. or you can walk - about ten minutes to the walls of the city and another ten minutes to the center of town. to get back to the train, there are no taxi stands at the center. best bet is to walk or get a taxi that is leaving passengers off in front in the town square.

Re: Local bus ride

It only took me about 10 minutes to wall through the walls (well, through a gap in them) and into the town centre, Lew....perhaps I'm just a quick walker? :-)

Re: Local bus ride

by nicolaitan

you took a shortcut - no fair. besides which, i can't just walk anywhere. have to stop and check everything out along the way.

Re: Local bus ride

by leics

Aha! That's the difference......I did the checking-out on the way back to the station (and the buying-of-schneeballen). :-))
