Day 260 – Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany

This morning we departed beautiful Heidelberg and headed for Rothenburg. Because Rothenburg is off the beaten path, we had to take four trains to get here. After six hours of travel, we had reached our destination. As soon as we crossed Rothenburg’s historic city walls, we knew we had arrived in a VERY special place. Rothenburg is absolutely INCREDIBLE!!! It is the most German of German towns and it’s definitely my favorite city in Deutschland (a gorgeous medieval city frozen in time).

  1. Beautiful, isn’t it? Love the cuckoo clocks and the sauerkraut with sausages and potatoes! Love the rest of the pix, too, especially the house with the curved slopes!

    If you’re going to Munich, I can put you in touch with our German friends. Marc was our exchange student eons ago, and he still visits us and Anastasia often. He lives in Munich, and his parents live just on the outskirts of town.

    • Thanks aunt Jan… Ryan and I do recall meeting Marc at Frances’ Birthday celebration. He seemed like a very nice young man. You are welcome to send us his info and we can touch base with him to see if he would like to meet up with us for dinner or a beer. It’s always fun seeing familiar faces🙂
