Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a very popular German town located in the Bavarian region. I think it’s popularity strands in the fact that it looks like a fairytale village taken out from a storybook. The major attraction of Rothenburg is the town itself.
When you walk its streets you feel transported to medieval times. Cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses, towers and a fortified stone wall surrounding the town, for me, all of this makes Rothenburg totally worth visiting.
Our day trip was a very relaxing one. We had no schedule, nothing planned, so we strolled along the streets with no hurry at all. And it was low season, so the town was practically empty. I must say this time A and me entered almost every souvenir store and we enjoyed it.
We fell in love with Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas store! The craftsmanship is really amazing! It was so difficult to choose the perfect souvenir since everything was just beautiful.
In front of the store some children were playing with soap bubbles. E and P joined them and soon after A was outside busting bubbles as well. That memory is the one I treasure the most from Rothenburg.
We ate a delicious meal accompanied by a very good local bear and then we headed out to explore the views from the city walls.
The only sound that could be heard was the wind blowing. So peaceful.
We collected great memories that day… And a lovely cuckoo clock that now hangs in the entrance of our home.
