Rothenburg on the river Tauber is one of the finest examples of medieval towns in Germany ( even though it was largely rebuild after the second world war) and is certainly one of the most beautiful places which we have visited in Europe. Rothenburg at its high point, about 1650, was a free imperial town, in 1802 it became part of the Kingdom of Bavaria and slipped rapidly into oblivion – thus saving its glory for the tourists of today.
