  • The view doesn't go to the point where it is a great view, but it is recommended because the park itself is beautiful. I also play the violin, so the atmosphere is good. If the weather is good, please come.

  • You can wander along the city walls of Rothenburg, then you are away from the hustle and bustle of the Altstadt with the many tourists.

  • Walking through the western gates of the walled city of Rothenburg, you find yourself wandering into the Burggarten. like the rest of the city, this park area sits high above the river and puts you outside the wall for some lovely views of the countryside as well as the southern portion of the city. Back in the day (way way back) this part had its own structures that have mostly been lost to time. in their place are large trees that provide a lot of shady spaces and benches to walk about and sit and relax. Definitely worth checking out as part of your stop in Rothenburg.
  • So pretty. Perfect place to walk, and a little quieter than the main town.
