Rothenburg is a delight at any time of year, but in winter, the snow turns spires and rooftops into a living Christmas card. Once a year, the medieval town of Rothenburg transforms itself into a winter wonderland and you can indulge in the festive cheer with a visit to the magical Reiterlesmarkt.
Trip Highlights
  • Rothenburg’s historic town walls are perfectly intact and are
    embellished with 42 gate houses and towers including Gallows
    Gate (Galgentor), Klingen Gate (Klingentor) which served as the
    city’s water tower, and Marcus Tower (Markusturm) with Röder
    Arch - one of the city’s most photographed landmarks.


  • The Castle Gardens and Convent Gardens provide a leafy oasis
    of calm; or for something a little more exotic, take a wander
    through the Lotus Garden and Asian-inspired water garden on
    the outskirts of the city.
