This past Sunday, December 21, I ventured the two hours away to Rothenberg. Supposedly their Christmas market is the best one in all of Germany. This city is truly stunning in and of itself. It resembles a village out of a storybook. Rothenberg was founded in the year 970! Its said to be one of the best preserved medieval towns in the country. You can read more about the city history here. I would have to say its become my own personal favorite town in Germany. I have not thus far seen a town more charming, romantic or lovely.
See below for photos of the city and Christmas market...
|Look closely at the awning to that Hotel. So sweet, isnt it?|
|Snowballs, the towns famed treat. And actually, they taste awful. One can purchase a snowball in a variety of flavors, as you can see above, but they are essentially just dry, tasteless dough rolled into balls and covered in a topping.|
|Look at how charming and gorgeous all the buildings are in this city! They ALL look like this. Like colorful gingerbread cookie cutouts.|
