Narrow alleyways, bustling hustle and bustle, half-timbered houses artistically spruced up: Welcome to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Here in this historic ambience, you can breathe in the old days wherever you go and wherever you stand. The unforgettable experience from another era begins in our youth hostel. It is centrally located in the historic old town in the 500-year-old Roßmühle and a house of the Spitalhof.
Medieval to romantic, gloomy to gruesome
Let yourself be whisked away to bygone days on a tour through the narrow streets. Time seems to stand still within the closed town wall with its walkable battlements.
Witch trials, instruments of torture, sinister murders: Go in search of clues in the medieval crime museum. Here you can experience everything that was right between the Middle Ages and the early 19th century.
Christmas fans will get their money's worth at the German Christmas Museum. Santa Clauses, paper nativity scenes and Christmas trees from all eras can be found here. And in the cold season, the medieval Christmas market attracts many visitors to Rothenburg every year.
If you can't get enough, you shouldn't miss the highlight of the year: the Imperial Town Days and the Meistertrunk, Rothenburg's historical festival.
Let your ideas run wild
So much Middle Ages and romance inspires even the little gray cells. Use our hall in the Spitalhof for training courses and workshops. You'll have fun with us. You bet?
We also offer programs for school classes and families.
Fancy some medieval romance? Then pay us a visit.
