Medieval city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Rothenburg is one of those Bavarian places that you must visit should you find yourself in Germany. It is a gorgeous medieval city right on the banks of the Tauber river. Can you believe this was our view from our room at the bed and breakfast. Pinch me!
We went online to find a place to stay and boy did we luck out on this one! We chose the Hotel Hornburg Garni.
We had a marvelous room on the 2nd floor. This picture only shows half of the room. The other half was another bank of windows and a roomy marble-tiled bathroom.
The place was so historical that our room key was an actual skeleton key!
I see you!
The first thing we explored was the wall itself. 
I loved the clippity-clop sound that the horse made on the cobblestones.
This part of the city square.
Some of the streets were only wide enough to walk down and they were all cobblestone.
Gorgeous, huh?
In the evening, we took the Nightwatchman's Tour. It is an absolute must if you visit this city. Be sure to click the links. You will enjoy them.

Teresa...this looks like an amazing trip! What made you choose Bavaria?


We were blessed. My husband's job chose it for us. He was sent to work near Frankfurt for 3 months and I was able to join him for the entire month of April. It was a wonderful trip!
