Spend a day exploring Rothenburg, o.d.T., the medieval city known world-wide for its intact city walls!

Known world wide for it's intact original architecture and city wall, Rothenburg is also the home of Käthe Wohlfahrt's Christmas Village, where every day is the night before Christmas.  Once you arrive in Rothenburg, you will have plenty of time to explore the world famous medieval city. Rothenburg is small enough that you will be able to  see the famous sights of the old town, and still have time to walk the city walls, visit the many museums including the Torture and Criminal Museum, Imperial City Museum, Toy Museum, and to try the local delicacy, the world famous “Rothenburg Snowballs”.  A free e-Travelguide downloaded from Army Libraries will be all you need to find all the highlights of the medieval city.
