Rothenburg ob der Tauber and the Imperial City Festival is in the sign of the good old days. Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a small little town with barely 11.000 inhabitants, but one of the best known in Germany – because of its unique, medieval architecture. This idyllic place with its old history, have attracted many artists for centuries. Beautiful facades, art pieces and an unique and specific atmosphere. At the beginning of September, Rothenburg is transformed into a unique open air theater, the Imperial City Festival. Here they call it “Reichsstadt-Festtage”. Hundreds of people from the town and surrounding areas are members of historical groups. At this festival they try reviving that old atmosphere and re-establishing traditional professions. Everything from old equipment to original fashion, Imperial City Festival tries to completely revive the history.
Resting 426 meters above sea level and overlooking the Tauber River Valley, its lovely gates, towers and massive walls present a silhouette which never fails to impress visitors. Some of the many sights you can explore include the Town Hall, St. Jacobs Church, Castle Gate and St. Mark’s Tower. There is also the world-famous Käthe Wohlfahrt store where it is Christmas every day.
