  1. Oh, you’re making me miss ROthenburg so much now!   Kathe WOhlFahrt, SchneeBallen, the walls, everything.  I do agree that Kathe  WohlFahrt has some of the best decorations. Our family has had  a tin of wooden ornaments from them for almost 40 years and a few years ago my mom gave them to me.  They go on my tree every year.  And of course there are the two prints of the city streets that live in my dining room.  
    My most enduring Memory for RothenBurg was climbing one of the towers and being told very earnestly by a very concerned Japanese Tourist “Don’t Rook DOWN!”.   

  2. Lovely. My husband and I went there one spring and the city is completely different during spring than it is at Christmas time. We did visit Kathe Wohlfahrt in Berlin this trip, though. Luckily everything made it safely through TSA! I can’t imagine getting home to find all of your expensive ornaments were broken!

  3. Such a cute place to visit! The food looks amazing and the hotel is fit for a week long stay with the kitchenette etc.

  4. Your description of the watchman’s tour was pretty convincing! Hahaha, I end up feeling a little ripped off if I go to a place and only stay one night, like there was much more to see but I didn’t get to see it. #farawayfiles

  5. we went to Rothenburg in August and I posted on it last week, so I really enjoyed reading your post! I would love to go during the Christmas markets. My favorite part of the day there was walking the wall. we stayed in Nuremberg, so we missed the night watchman tour, which looks so fun. You found fabulous food, too!

  6. I’ve actually never heard of Rothenburg Ob Der Tauber… but it looks like a fun and quaint place to visit around the holidays especially! Also, I always love your hotel recommendations as they are so thoughtful and include photos. I’d def check out Hotel Klosterstuble if I was in the area 🙂

  7. Thank you so much for sharing this with me! I’m visiting Munich for 5 days, and plan to take a day trip to Rothenburg. It just looks so fascinating. The Night Watchman Tour is definitely on my list! Hopefully I am there long enough to take it. Oh, and the Schneeballen sounds like something I must try!! Can’t wait!
