We were on our way to Rothenburg but stopped to check out this town first. we became so enamored by it that we unfortunately had to cut our visit to Rothenburg short. It was just so pleasant walking the streets of this small walled city...More

Beautiful medieval walled town with lovely half timbered buildings.Lots of backstreets to wander around, and lots of small shops to browse in. Nice range of restaurants and coffee shops - Rhodos Greek restaurant is highly recommended. Excellent place to stay for a christmas market experience...More

Great little walled German town that is easy and fun to explore. There's not a whole lot to do but great for a quick stop.

An absolutely beautiful German Medieval town. Well set out, clean and safe. Absolutely perfect for the Christmas Season. The buildings are all lit up with Christmas lights and it could be another time all together. Well done to the businesses and occupants. It is beautiful.

Drove the Romantic Road in August. This was one of our favourite villages of the trip. Straight out of a Grimm's Fairy Tale. Cobblestone streets, friendly folks and a very peaceful atmosphere. The houses and businesses are rendered in late Renaissance facades with pastel colours...More

Walked round the old town in clear weather and warm sunshine so we were able to really appreciate the beautiful half timbered buildings in the streets. Everything looked clean and spacious and well maintained and easy to navigate on foot.

I loved this small beautiful city. By my opinion this was even better than Rothenburg ob am Tauber. Quiet town, not so touristy, beautiful houses. One minor thing, there is hard to find souvenir shops.
