As we all know, a picture says more than 1,000 words: Rothenburg ob der Tauber is the perfect place to turn a history lesson into something up close and personal.
Taking a group along the town walls and through the narrow streets of the old town will transport them back to times past where the Middle Ages can be brought to life: Rothenburg is like a walk-in history book with genuine, living chapters.
Learning couldn’t be more fun! The “Traces of the Past” guided tour is also specially designed for schools and youth groups and deals with interesting topics such as “The Middle Ages”, “Urban Development” or “The Class System” in a manner appropriate to the specific age group of the participants.
Of course you shouldn’t miss out on a chance to stay overnight in Rothenburg Youth Hostel, which offers accommodation for young and old in a 500-year old mill and in one of the buildings of the former hospital.
