Rothenburg ob der Tauber unites enchantingly beautiful landscapes:
To the North, the river Tauber flows softly and gently through vineyards into the beautiful Tauber Valley towards Wertheim am Main. The Tauber’s source springs to the South and the river winds its way through the unspoiled Frankenhöhe area as far as Rothenburg.
