    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


    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!"


    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!


    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 Experience


    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!

    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!


    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.

He had invited us to join him at the Gemeinde Christi congregation in Munich. Brentwood Hills has been helping provide support for this congregation for many years. They are planning to install their very first elders on that day, and BHCC folks thought since we were close by, that we might join them for this ...

    Al is still not feeling well. He is coughing and coughing - and keeping me up at night too. So, needless to say we slept in and didn't go on any of the tours. Most of the tours required at least an hour ride and we just weren't up to that...I am still tired and then my stomach gets queasy. A lot of the other passengers are complaining of various illnesses...anyway, there were just a few ...

    ... boat moved on down the Maine River and we spent the afternoon in the lounge reading and taking in the countryside. I also spent some time on the upper sundeck as it was a beautiful afternoon, sunny and with no wind, possibly around 17C. It's by far the best day weather wise since we left Australia. We passed through 3 locks during the afternoon and at Wurzburg which is 189 metres above sea level, we have descended some 217 metres since crossing ...
