When the cold winter days have finally given way to the first warm rays of sunlight and the brightly colored flowers entice us out of doors once again, the Rothenburg Spring Awakening offers plenty of things to do and see.
As in many other parts of Franconia, numerous springtime customs have survived in Rothenburg, for example the tradition of richly decorating the town’s many fountains for Easter. Culinary tours run by the proGast quality initiative involve creative interpretations of traditional lamb dishes and other springtime recipes. Guided tours covering subjects such as “Rothenburg’s fountains” provide an entertaining way to hear new stories and learn useful new facts relating to this lovely time of year.
The Spring Hiking Week and the Spring Festival, a festival involving numerous special events in the town’s shops, culinary specialties and a program of shows in the Market Square, are two more elements in the Rothenburg Spring Awakening.
You can also enjoy cultural highlights, family-friendly events and fascinating exhibitions in the unique setting of our town.
