Rothenburg Is the Ultimate Christmas Town

The tasteful decorations lining Rothenburg’s cobblestone streets combined with the stunning Christmas Market create a picture-perfect holiday scene.

Rothenburg is a walled city located on a plateau overlooking the Tauber River, hence its official name of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

Stepping into the main Kathe Wohlfarcht store is overwhelming, in a good way.

The Rothenburg Christmas Market just steps away from the main Kathe Wohlfarcht store and much less overwhelming, despite the tourists.

Plan time to wander! I looked at bookstores, home decor shops, a huge stuffed animal store, luggage, and even that armor retailer.
