Hiking in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Skulptur des Heiligen Jakobus als Wegweiser für Pilger.
Skulptur des Heiligen Jakobus als Wegweiser für Pilger.

To know what beauty is, go forth into nature, where you will find it." Albrecht Dürer


This advice from the famous master artist hits the nail of the head – the magic of Rothenburg and its surroundings becomes evident as you explore!


For many people this is something new, while others have known it for a long time: Rothenburg has an unusually beautiful and close-knit network of marvelous walking routes. Thirteen fully signposted and well-maintained walking routes invite you to explore the medieval town and its former ramparts around Rothenburg on foot. The route along the European continental divide is among Germany’s longest and most beautiful walking routes, taking you past Rothenburg on your way from Ansbach to Schnelldorf. So, what are you waiting for?
