Rothenburg Christmas Markets
17th December 2015

Things to do and see

  Käthe Wohlfahrt: Don´t miss the world famous "Christmas Village" in the centre of the town. Experience the fascinating atmosphere of a Franconian village with snow covered roofs all year round.

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is one of the prettiest, best preserved medieval towns in Germany. Its massive stone town walls studded with 42 towers; half-timbered houses with red-tiled roofs; cobblestone streets and flowerfilled window boxes could have you believing that it is a movie set - but it's all real!  A fascinating mixture of tradition and creativity, good fellowship and hospitality creates a "good old times" atmosphere that is typically German.

The festive Advent period here has been accompanied by a wonderful Christmas market since the 15th century. Looking back on over 500 years of tradition, little has changed over the years and the historical customs have been closely followed. The narrowly winding streets and picturesque squares around the town hall and its archways are lined with wooden booths, appropriately decorated for the Christmas season.

•  German Christmas Museum: Learn about the history of the family festival steeped in tradition and how decorations have developed. Enjoy the fantastically beautiful Christmas tree decorations and the 150 historical Santa Claus figures.
