Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Rothenburg is probably the most famous medieval walled ciy - to judge by the number of japanese tourists.
In principle it could be a charming little town, if every second building weren't filled with some tourist trap.
WARNING for anyone thinking of going there, don't buy the snowballs (Schneeball): they're not only overpriced, they're also really disgusting.
Cuckoo clocks are also NOT typical for this fleck of Germany, and the Chinese make pretty good wood kitsch for around a quarter of the price.
Anyway you're probably wondering what all the hooo haa is about given this introduction.
This is the main square with some quaint little half-timbered houses:
A view from the outside of the battlements
One of the watchtowers
One of the enterances
After spending a day in Rothenburg we went on to Dinkelsbuehl 40 km south of Rothenburg to spend the night.
