With tourism being a major industry in Rothenburg ob der Tauber,
there's no shortage of places to stay. The city's
represents many local hotels, guesthouses, campgrounds, and vacation apartments.
For a great selection of hotels at competitive rates, try the
Rothenburg ob der Tauber listings of our main hotel partner in Germany,
Two hotels that we can personally recommend are:
Hotel Restaurant Eisenhut
Rothenburg's most celebrated hotel occupies four connected 15th and 16th Century
mansions on the Herrngasse, just off the Markplatz in the center of town. The
traditionally furnished rooms vary from cozy singles to suites, and the hotel
has a first-rate kitchen.
Restaurant and Hotel
This family-run boutique hotel is just outside the city walls. Its 27 rooms
are decorated in a light, airy style that combines traditional and modern
themes, and the "Franconian freestyle" restaurant is superb.
We haven't stayed in the 650-year-old
Altfrankische Weinstube, but its restaurant and wine bar are delightful, and
the location in a medieval side street couldn't be more romantic. The reasonable
rates for its six attractive B&B-style rooms (all with private bath) include a
"Best of the Web"
and The Washington Post
