Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Last weekend we made the short journey to the storybook town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. That's a mouth full isn't it? This little Bavarian gem embodies charm and romance. I do say this frequently but this really is our favorite town in all of Germany.
A compact town, encased within it's original medieval walls made it perfect for an afternoon stroll. This little town is utterly charming. The buildings had a life of their own, with their vibrant colors and preserved medieval charm. Rothenburg is a perfect afternoon break from daily life. Just wander the streets, take in the history and beautiful vistas, and of course peruse the little shops filled with so much character.

Stunning isn't it? Looks like it should be in a period movie.
This is someone's home!!! Can I move in?

One of the adorable store fronts.

One of the many unique stores in the town.

Found it!!! I always see this street corner on Pinterest. Famous streets of Germany.

Aren't they cute!? I think they need to come home with me.

Because our travels and excursions would not be complete without stuffing ourselves full of food.

We FINALLY had one of these made. I am totally in love with it. The wonderful owner does all the wood carving in the back and at the front desk she does all the hand painting and burning.

Rothenburg is a great town for shopping. So many unique stores, filled with hand made treasures. We got a serious head start on Christmas shopping because of all the items we couldn't pass on for family back home.

Adorable, charming, picturesque, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, we will be back many times over for you.


  1. What a beautiful little town! I'd love to make it to this corner of the world sometime.

    1. I never really had Germany on my list of places I had to see. After moving here though, I can't for the life of me figure out why. There are so many beautiful places to see and great things to do. Thanks for stopping by and commenting :) I get so excited when I get comments so thank you. Have a great week!!!
