Rothenburg photo

A sign advertises the Historischer Schäfertanz, or Historic Shepherds' Dance, which takes place several times a year in Rothenburg. The tradition dates back to the Middle Ages, when the Brotherhood of Shepherds Guild received permission for an annual "Shepherds' Day" celebration in the city center. Modern reenactments in historic costume began in 1911. (For more information, visit the official Historischer Schäfertanz Web site.)
