It was cold, really cold spending the night in Red. We were awake often, and never really got warm; which is quite a stark lesson considering some of the sharper places we will visit later. Thankfully, the unremitting chilliness meant that we did not stay in bed overlong, but were very keen to get up, put the kettle on and have a warming cup of …
Rotherburg Ob Der Tauber is a walled city on the Roantic Road that is, quite simply a stunning place to visit.
We had some challenges finding our way to the Hotel once inside the walls however we did eventually find our way down narrow, cobblestone streets covered with stupid tourists and to the hotel.
Our view was another …
Sunday July 21 - packed up our suite, finished the laundry, changed our currency cards to Euros, got a town car to the airport to check in 3hrs before our flight. Why? It is insane - we check in online, print our boarding passes before we get to the airport all we need at the airport in to check in our baggage and get through security - why 3 hours …
... The Castle was destroyed by an earthquake in 1356, and was not rebuilt. The Gardens gives us a great view of the old town and the valley surrounding it.
We needed a break from the temps, so we stopped for a drink – and a rest. Given the air conditioning of the Christmas shop, guess where Carolyn headed next, while Frank retreated to our hotel to blog.
Those of you ...
... was followed by a very entertaining glass blowing demonstration. The artist is a colleague of Chehuly and did a great job. He also had an interesting story to tell as he escaped East Germany in 1950 as the barriers were being secured. There was a small surprise of a "towel rabbit" and balloons waiting in our room with birthday wishes. The finishing touch for the day was enjoying a video of birthday wishes from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Burghotel Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Wonderful Romantic Hotel
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.
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.
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
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
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 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
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
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!
Beware of lost reservations...
What a view!
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.
