Rothenburg is such a charming town, and you get plenty of time to shop and explore on your own. But the absolute highlight is the Nightwatchman's fun evening tour of the town -- you'll love it!
We were a little nervous traveling without our bus and hotel documents. However like clockwork the bus arrived on time and the driver had all of our information and complete itinerary - all in order. Clean, safe and reliable transportation.
Great trip and wonderful stops along the way. We would recommend this trip to all travelers young and old.
This was wonderful. It was a recorded tour which was fine. I would do this again with no reservations. Plenty of time in Rothenburg and the night watchman's tour was great. I could have stayed an extra day or may take a longer tour. No issues with the staff, no issues with the hotel. The hotel had free wifi and I was able to Skype with my Wife in the states and let her see was I was seeing live from just out side the hotel. I really look forward to doing this again and bring the Wife.
Value for money, nothing to worry about, all organised in a professional manner.
We had many expectations after reading the reviews prior to taking this trip and when we did it was just fantastic.We went in June prior to the European holiday season and the scenery was spectular. Our stay at Rottenberg was unforgettable, fantastic hotel and very courteous staff. The night watchman tour was brilliant. The coach we traveled on was very comfortable with plenty of stops at different towns for breaks and photo shots. Traveling with children was no problem. Thank you
Rothenburg is a fantastic little medieval town and the Night Watchman tour is a must. We could easily have stayed another day or two. There was a great little park at one end and from there you can see the whole valley and it was also a nice place to just sit and rest after shopping or hiking around the old town. I would definitely like to go down this again and maybe stay in another town or two along the way.
The tour was amazing! It allowed us to experience many small medieval-style towns across the path to Frankfurt. Augsburg, Nördlingen, Dinkelsbühl, each one more enchanting than the next. Rothenburg was an unbelievable experience. It felt like we'd spent a week there, because we didn't want to stop walking around inside the walls of the town. The Night Watchman's tour was so much fun too, it just made the whole experience more memorable. And to finish it all, the castle stop in Weikersheim was magical, also thanks to our great driver/guide. I would do it again many times !

This was a great tour. The Nightwatchman's Tour of the town was brilliant and very amusing. Wuld recommend to anyone. Rothenburg is a lovely town.
We loved the overnight stay in Rothenburg. It is a wonderful place to visit. The hotel was great. The night watchman's tour was super. I am only giving it 4 stars because it is not a private tour. It is a public bus that makes a couple of stops along the way. As well, when we were on the way to Frankfurt, the bus had to backtrack and pick up about 20 people from an outlet mall. This was in heavy traffic and construction added about 40 miles round trip to the journey. If we had known it was a public bus, we would most likely have made arrangements to go by train. When we got to the first pickup place, the coach was not there. We ended up walking about 20 blocks with suitcases to get to the central station. When it arrived, we were the only people on the tour.
I am giving this four stars for only one reason. The bus ride to Rothenburg from Munich was uncomfortable. It was very very warm inside the bus and seemed like very little air was circulating throughout the bus. The bus driver was not very friendly. However, the ride was beautiful and was a great way to see lots of the countryside and the romantic road. Once we arrived in Rothenburg we were totally excited. The Hotel was wonderful and the staff very friendly. The town itself is a must see. Totally incredible. The night watchman tour was superb, don't miss it. The day spent wandering the town was great. Good food, good beer, good shopping, good sightseeing, and very friendly people. On the bus ride to Frankfurt the driver was much more friendly and there was a guide as well. The bus itself was still warm. Maybe that is the standard for busses. I suggest you dress in layers so you can take off clothes to be comfortable. I would absolutely do this tour again
