Rottweil is a lovely little town. The oldest town in the Black Forest, it has a nice pedestrian zone with cute but not-too-touristy shops and good cafes. The Schwarze Tor is similar to the old tower gates you find in other towns, like Villingen, but...More

Visiting a christmas market in Rottweil or its old town? You'll surely see this old gate. It's not special but really old enough to hold Rottweil's history. Enjoy the wonderful architecture of the city too. There are stores, bakeries, restaurants (a Chinese Restaurant is one...More

Hauptstrasse doesn't have more than 500 meters long, but it is really a beautiful and almost a fantasy place. The rottweiler statues in front of many stores (all of them with a cute handkerchief on their necks) and the Schwarze Tor at the end of...More
