This is an amazing step back into history! What a beautiful town full of original buildings from over 500 years ago. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk through town. Next time we'll stay for a couple days.

It is perfect for a day's outing. It is much smaller than the "similar" Rothenburg ob der Tauber and then also less visitors. It is advisable to google a walk around or possibly get this at tourist centre. Unfortunately we were there beginning January and...More

A delightful town on the German Romantic Way well worth a night or two! Far fewer tourists than Rothenburg so very manageable walking around the town!

Great for a stroll around the old town , enjoy the medieval city walls and some of the traditional architecture. Can also be combined with nearby Rothenburg and is also part of the Romantic Strasse (road)

Beautiful town and buildings. The different towers all around the wall are amazing. Traffic is annoying but don't let it stop you. We sat and had our picnic by the town pond, it was beautiful. You need plenty of time to stroll around and discover...More
