Altstadt, Rothenburg

4.9
Experience the enchantment of medieval Germany in Rothenburg's Altstadt. Comprising part of the famous Romantic Road, the neighborhood is considered one of the country's most well-preserved medieval quarters. Its 13th-century architecture is enclosed by the old city wall. Tour the antique storefronts and medieval houses that line the cobblestone streets. Then climb the 61 m (200 ft) tall Roedertor tower to admire the city's signature red-roof skyline. Don't leave before trying the traditional Schneeballen, or sugar-covered fried dough. To visit Altstadt and other attractions in Rothenburg, use our Rothenburg trip builder app .

  • Try to find an accommodation in the Altstadt, then you can experience the city before and after the large amounts of visitors are here. As with all the nice places there will be a little too much people on beautiful days.
