    Easy to walk around in

    by islaazul Written Sep 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Best part about Rothenburg is once you've parked, you don't have to drive for the duration of your stay because the town is small and very easy to walk around in. It's impossible to get lost, and there are no "unsafe" areas to walk in.

    fresh drinking-water in Rothenburg

    Trains run regularily e.g. from Frankfurt/Main and the train will need 2,5 hours one way .
    I made this info for a friend some time ago, and hope it is still valid, at least you may see that trains run on a regular basis !
    departure in Franfurt - Change in Wuerzburg and Steinbach
    0819 a.m. - 10.51 and again at 09.19a.m. - 12.01 etc.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    departure in Rothenburg - Change in Steinbach and Wuerzburg:
    02.06 p.m. - 04.40 p.m. and 03.06 p.m. - 05.40 p.m.and 04.06 p.m. - 06.40 p.m. etc.

    and many more train-connections to be found on my link below !
    they also have an English version !

    From the trainstation the distance to Spitals-Tor and Roedertor is not more than maybe 300 meters.

    go around Rothenburg by Horse-Carriage

    by globetrott Updated Apr 28, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    a horse-carriage at Ploelein

    Hmm - almost like a Fiakker in Vienna...
    ....and certainly the most elegant way to explore the old town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. These carriages have - in contrary to many other cities - long seats and a capacity of more than 15 passengers per carriage. That way it is a quite affordable pleasure and maybe a good alternative to explore the old town of Rothenburg without the need to walk through it on cobbled stones.

    Parking your car is no problem in Rothenburg

    by globetrott Written Apr 28, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the big parkngnext to Spitalstor

    Parking your car in Rothenburg ob der Tauber is absolutely NO problem. There is a perfect system of several parkingareas, most of which were made in the places, where the town had some moats around of the medieval townwall.
    During the day you have to pay a fee, after 07.00p.m. it is free of charge, BUT Motorhomes have to go to a special parking, and have to pay there each hour day and night. I was lucky that my motorhome is small enough for an ordinary car-park and I was parking there without problem and without fee also during the day, at one of the very few spaces without a meter...
    On my picture : the parking next to Spitalstor.

    Markusturm

    Rothenburg has its own little branch line, which meets the main Würzburg to Augsburg main line at Steinach, so this is where you have to change trains, but it is all very convenient and rarely with long waits. The Steinach to Rothenburg journey is only fifteen minutes.

    Walking from the station to the town centre takes you to the Rödertor town gate, and then this gate, Markusturm, from the old inner wall.

    Drive the Romantische Strasse

    by davequ Updated Jul 29, 2004

    Drive from Wurzburg to Fussen & Munich

    Too many tourists in Rothenburg during the day can be escaped by renting a car for one day and driving all the beautiful Romantic Road (Romantische Strasse) towns from Dinkelsbuhl to Fussen in one day, then returning to Rothenburg for dinner and the evening walking the city.

    Getting around...

    by CandS Written Apr 11, 2003

    Once you are at Rothenburg you can walk everywhere. The tour guide that took us around walked very fast too so be ready for it! ;)

    You won't have any problems getting around on foot and you will see a lot more that way also.

    It is so convenient to use trains in Germany. One can easily get to Rothenburg by train from e.g., Frankfurt airport:

    Use the website below and choose
    Destination: Rothenburg o d Tauber
    Departure: Frankfurt(M) Flughafen Regionalbf

    And your time of day of travel and time, then you will see info of all trains available.

    One could also rent a car and drive to Rothenburg (as we did).

    Freedom

    by tuff Updated Oct 18, 2007

    The best way to Rothenburg is by car. Nothing beats the freedom of having a car with a navigator on the country side. However, I did have the burden of having a car when I am in the big cities.

    Horse and carriage

    by Sjalen Written Dec 14, 2004

    The carriage tours in Rothenburg were surprisingly cheap (at €8 a person when I was there) but then they do use carriages big enough for many, not the romantic types.

    Our Eurail Ticket...after a beating...

    We took the train from Munich to Rothenburg (and back again) as a day trip using our Eurail ticket. It took just over 4 hours to get there. The scenery was amazing along the way... :)
