    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    buy an iron shirt...

    This shop in Herrengasse 12 was the best one that I saw in Rothenburg, where you may buy an iron armoury. B.t.w. the one on my picture is 1290 Euros, and I am not even sure that this is a confortable one...
    The shop is open Monday-Friday :
    09.00a.m.-12.00noon + 02.00p.m.-06.00p.m.
    Saturday 09.00a.m. - 04.00p.m.
    and even on sunday : 11.00a.m. - 04.00p.m.

    What to buy: They have quite a good choice of iron amouries, similar shop I saw so far only in Prague.

    What to pay: 1290 Euros for the big iron armouy on my picture.

    Terracotta Replicas of Rothenburg-houses

    Plenty of shops all over Rothenburg offer such buildings and , because so many tourists from Japan and USA will come to Rothenburg, you may also get your purchase sent home by mail.

    What to buy: When you click on my picture, you may see a big choice of small replicas of the famous buildings of Rothenburg ob der Tauber . Most of these houses may be lighted from inside and make a great decoration at home.

    What to pay: The price depends of course on the size and I saw nice ones alraedy for around 40 Euros.

    Konditorei Striffler: Schneeballen / Snowballs

    by globetrott Updated Apr 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Schneeballen - a traditional desert in Rothenburg

    Konditorei Striffler was the 1st bakery in Rothenburg, that started to produce these cakes back in the year 1925. Snowballs are still produced freshly every day there. BUT be careful, before buying a large number of them, they are really hard and need some tricks to be eaten. I had one with just cinnemon and sugar, and it was quite hard work to break out smaller parts, I could eat. Those snowballs, covered with chocolate will get you terribly sticky fingers...

    What to buy: Schneeballen (Snowballs) are a traditional desert of the area and you may see them in almost any Konditorei / Confectionery in Rothenburg ob der Tauber . The principal of such a snowball are wide stripes of a special - quite hard dough consisting of plenty of eggs, cream and plum-brandy - and many of such stripes will be gathered in the shape of a snowball before baking them. Click on my link below and learn more about it on the webpage of that Konditorei Striffler, you may even order Schneeballen there online...

    What to pay: Schneeballen are about 1,80 Euro each for the size on my picture

    Anneliese Friese: The Beer Stein

    by chodearm Updated Jan 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I friggin love beer. As a child a sip would sicken me. Grandpa would let me take a swig of the Schlitz and the repulsiveness of taste made me vow "I will never drink beer" This will be overturned to my mothers dismay. I also thought girls were icky, Uncle Ricky's Kiss Posters were scarey and the White Kidnapping Van was coming to get me. As my thoughts evolved as did my tastebuds. I am quite proud of what they now accept. From beating fish hearts, to fried frog legs, they now know what taste is about. The distaste in Schlitz still stands bold, but for reasons of bad brewing not for the single reason that it was BEER.

    What to buy: NYC has the BIG APPLE as its identity symbol. Germany should have a BEER STEIN as it's symbol.

    What to pay: 66 euros..it says it right there.

    Anneliese Friese 2

    The owner and our new magnet

    Our first day Yuki and I walked into this store to find a map of the town. The woman kindly handed us one from behind the counter. We were on the Cuckoo Clock hunt on day two and ended up back in the same confines. Upon entering, the woman came over to us and sat staring at Yuki as our eyes were pasted on the swinging pendulums of the clocks.

    "You a beauty" the woman said, as she stood lock eyed on Yuki.
    "You were here yesterday" she finished.

    With all the people that must drop in she remembered us. She was so sweet. She autographed a map and gave it to us and than gave us a replica of our clock in the magnet form (pictured) to, as she put it, "show your friends".

    Anneliese Friese: Buying a Cuckoo Clock

    by chodearm Updated Jan 24, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The stores walls

    Mission number one when it came to shopping was to get ourselves an authentic Cuckoo Clock since we were quite close to the black forest. An ovject of this nature would be a constant reminder with every "koo-koo" of the bird. The selection process was quite hard in that I didn't know what I was exactly looking for. The owners of the store were very helpful, all spoke fluent english and thouroughly explained the different styles. We ended up with a classic HUNTER STYLE. Since most people purchasing are tourist's, they will ship to your home so you don't have to hand carry this fragile piece.

    What to buy: Cuckoo Clocks and Beer Steins

    What to pay: For the clock 200$ plus....
