Rothenburg is best seen on foot. Walk the wall that encircles the town for a wonderful vantage point. Stroll the cobblestone streets and enjoy the architecture and ambiance. For expansive views of the valley below, walk to the outlook at the end of the Castle Garden.

This hotel was charming; it had the feel of a small inn. We had a lovely pine- paneled room with a king-size bed. The bed was made in a unique fashion. Instead of a top sheet and shared blanket or bedspread, we each had our own personal down comforter--very cozy.

The hotel is conveniently located near the Castle Gate and Castle Garden. A generous continental breakfast was included.
