Need To Unwind Away From The Modernized City? 7 Magical Cities Where Time Stands Still

 

2  Rothenburg – Germany


The best preserved medieval town in Germany, Rothenburg ob der Tauber fits the word romantic perfectly. Rothenburg today is a small city having a great touristical importance, because the Medieval city is almost completely kept.

Rothenburg

Although there had been settlement in the area and in the neighbouring Tauber valley for many centuries before, the official history of Rothenburg is generally thought to date from the 10th century with the construction of a castle in an easily-defensible position above the River Tauber (thus “Rothenburg ob der Tauber” – ober meaning above).

Rothenburg overview

Must-to-do-list: Walk the wall that encircles Rothenburg to get various perspectives of architecture in the middle ages (as well as a lot of exercise). Climb to the top of the Rothenburg Town Hall Tower (circa 1250-1400) for the wide angle view of Rothenburg and surrounding, mostly pastoral countryside. To feel the excitement of a medieval traveler as he approached this then important town, view Rothenburg’s incomparable silhouettes from the plateau across the Tauber River Valley (in the direction of the village of Schwarzenbronn) and from the ancient double vaulted bridge on the valley floor.
