    Wonderful hotel. We stayed in the apartment across the street which was great for our family. The service and hotel were charming. It was great to have a garage to park the car in as well. It was a cool night so having a window open was very comfortable.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Burghotel Rothenburg ob der Tauber

    Wonderful Romantic Hotel

    from

    I've stayed here twice and loved it both times. The first time my wife and I stayed in the tower suite, which was great: spacious, comfortable and unique. The second time I was on my way to Oktoberfest with a friend and stayed in the apartment up the street. It was a very large, 3 room apartment. It was perfect for a family, also.

    The breakfast is excellent and the outside seating area on the wall is beautiful. The staff is very, very friendly and professional. Lufthansa lost our luggage in Frankfurt and the staff helped get it to the hotel in less than 12-15 hours. Unbelievable! (kudos to Lufthansa also).

    If you go to Rothenburg, you should stay at least one night. It's a whole different world when the crowds leave.

    "What a wonderful place to stay!"

    from

    My husband, myself and 2 children (13 &10) stayed here in July 2004. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so warm and friendly. My husband does speak German (from his days in the Army over there) and that did help. I had reserved over the internet an apartment with 2 bedrooms. We had the apartment in a building up the street and it was perfect! We had so much space and it actually had 3 bedrooms. I have found whenever we go to Europe, that requesting 2 or more bedrooms, we end up with the apartments on the top floor of buildings. This is great for space and privacy and you usually have a wonderful view of all the churches, rooftops and scenes far away. My kids loved the tower on the property also. It was really nice staying inside the walls as well. My daughter and I also collect dollhouse miniatures, and there is a doll and miniature museum in Rothenburg which we loved. The wife of the Burg Hotel owner also collects them and has miniature rooms setup in the lobby. You really can't go wrong staying here.

    Loved it!

    from

    Our room had a canopy bed and a beautiful view overlooking the valley and wall. The room was not new or "updated"... I would have been disappointed if it was!! The carpet was a little worn and the floor boards squeaked a little, but that only added to the charm. Everything was clean and the staff was very nice. Everything was exactly what I was hoping it would be!

    The Top of My List

    from

    We arrived in the "story book" town of Rothenburg and easily located the Burg Hotel. How lovely it was to experience and explore this medieval town.

    Our beautifully appointed room had a panoramic view of the Tauber Valley. The friendly staff and owner of the hotel made our stay most enjoyable.

    A traveler's paradise.

    Great stay for our family of five

    from

    We were lucky enough to stay at the Burg Hotel this past summer. Having three teenage children makes it hard to find accomodations for five. The Burg had a great place for us in their guest house next door to the hotel and at a very reasonable price! We got an entire floor with three large bedrooms, great beds and lots of windows. The views from the breakfast room are incredible and walking around this walled city was one of the highlights of our trip. When we go back, I would make sure that we stay here.

    Great Experience

    from

    Great property. We had a suite and it was large, including the bathroom. There was no street noise, which was great considering the rest of the town had tons! We were pleased with the relaxing atmosphere and the very pleasant staff and hosts. There is free internet and email access, which made it nice to connect to the world, per se. Breakfast was wonderful. Would place this on my booking plans for next year!

    Lovely, quiet Hotel in Rothenburg

    from

    The Burg exceeded my expectations. It was quiet, yet within 2 blocks of the town square in Rothenburg. Much better than being in the middle of a busy, tourist laden town.

    Lovely rooms with a wonderful view of the surrounding area. Quaint & charming without the "touristy" touch. There's a very complete and tasty breakfast.

    The staff was friendly & helpful and we even visited with them at a local restaurant one evening. Their recommendations were on target and it almost seemed we were visiting their home.

    The only down side was no elevators. Be sure to accept the staff's offer to carry your luggage to your room, especially if you are on the 3rd floor.

    The climb is worth it...... The Burg Hotel is a perfect European hotel.

    Heaven on a Hill

    from

    Absolutely a perfect stay! The hotel is that very rare mix of centrally located yet secluded. It is also picturest, completely updated, easy to find, out of the way, homey and romantic. The views, welcome and hospitality where without equal in this very romantic hotel.We had an absolutely wonderful time, hour host was warm with perfect english and made every effort to make us feel welcome. We stayed in room 12. I cannot imagine a better room.Stay here!

    Would have loved to have been able to stay

    Beware of lost reservations...

    My partner and I had booked the Burg Hotel's €150 tower room for a recent stay in Europe. The day we were to arrive, we called to inform them at around 6:00 p.m. that we would be arriving in Rothenburg after dinner. The owner's husband informed us that the room had been rented earlier that afternoon to a family who intended to stay for a number of days and that we were out of luck. We checked our confirmation emails and called the owner who then told us, quite impolitely, that because we had not checked in by 6:00 p.m. they had rented the room {the fact that they had taken our credit card number to secure the reservation seemed to be of little importance}. Of course, nowhere in the email correspondence nor on the hotel's website was this arbitrary deadline of 6:00 p.m. listed. So if you're looking for hotel rooms in Rothenburg, look elsewhere {since it will be much easier to do it in advance than at 8:00 p.m. on a rainy Sunday evening}.

    What a view!

    from

    This hotel was the epitome of charm. The owner was extremely cordial and the view was spectacular. When I think of Germany, I think of this hotel. I would like to stay here again.

    Off by bus to Rothenburg through the countryside, our guide Linda pointed out that this area is the 2nd sunniest in Germany but that the last decent rain was in May & it is now been the hottest since 1975. There are 16 federal states in Germany, this state grows sugar beet, to produce sugar, mainly for cocacola. The average farm size is 100ha but you very seldom see houses on the farm this is due to the fact that in ...

    Another wonderful day with relatives. We are so very lucky to have such kind and giving family to look after us while we are in Europe. Mucki and Wolfgang drove us to Hohenloher Freiland Museum. A village set up with buildings from 1500s to early 1900s. They were sourced from around Germany, dismantled in large pieces and reconstructed in this museum village. Then off to pick up Erika and go to Evelyn's for coffee and cake. She made all of the cakes in her ...

    After breakfast we went into Crailsheim to buy Ron some summer weight socks and walk in the city. We went to the Kirch Platz and inside the Lutheran Johannes Kirche. Walked along the Jagst River and small section of the city wall remaining from the heavy bombing and burning of Crailsheim during World War II and to the Zeug Turm. Home for lunch for Maultaschen and salad at Mucki's. Off to the ...

We went back to Mucki's for a clothes change and then on to Angelika's house for BBQ dinner. Ron and I walked to Gelly's house which took about 15 minutes. We had 4 courses of ...
