Rothenburg would hands down be my favorite picturesque German town. With cars generally not allowed in the town, it is easy to imagine yourself in times gone by with half-timbered houses along cobblestoned lanes. The town is surrounded by walls with gate houses that give an unique and beautiful views of the valleys surrounding. Even though we have been several times, we always find something new. While walking the wall we could have been the only ones in the whole town as it was so peaceful and quiet.
