Rothenburg ob der Tauber

High over the Tauber Valley, where the Romantic Road and the Castle Road (Burgenstraße) meet, springs up the unforgettable silhouette of the former free imperial city. The tumultuous history of the town is reflected in the performances of the historical pageant ‘Der Meistertrunk’ and in the "Schäfertanz”.
