Dinkelsbuehl was like Rothenburg, but more like a normal town. The first evening we went to their very small Christmas market where local children sung and danced. Then off for a nice dinner in a fairly normal looking pub and a brisk walk back to our pension (it was -10 to -15 degrees and our 1L bottle of water in the car froze over night).
This is what the town looked like from outside the battlements at sunset:
This is the fortress from the outside note the nice red and white striped shutters on the little house built into the battlements
This is a view of the town centre with the old stone church and half-timbered houses
These are then some of the main houses, containing restaurants
