Travel Blogs from Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Today's entry is a little late but that is because we were out a little late...but I'll get to that.
We left Bad Mergentheim and following a little windy road that the Germans have labeled the "Romantic Road", we went to the town of Weikersheim. While cute, Weikersheim was just a warm-up for what is to come. Next, we stopped outside the …
Wes was feeling much better this morning but we still got off to a bit of a late start while everyone recovered. Eventually Tom Tom Lady guided us to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, or just Rothenburg, a very well-preserved walled medieval town dating back to around 1100.
One thing you can say for sure about town designers in the 11th and 12th …
Yeah, weird name. Ob der Tauber means 'by the river'. It's a medieval town in Bavaria. It's located on the 'romantic road' route that most German guide books recommend. Totally quaint! We stayed at a great hotel: Hotel Kloster-Stuble. The food was great too. We went to the Medieval Crime and Punishment Museum. Seriously, if that stuff was still …
March 24, 2005 Germany from food heaven to food purgatory... She Said: After months of gorgeous hot weather, beautiful beaches and amazing food, I was not particularly enthusiastic about the prospect of cold (did someone mention snow - ahk) and greasy chow. Happily, our 5 day stop turned out to be a wonderful breath of fresh air (literally after …
... Sausage festival we went to near Wurzburg. A really fun day & night. Basically exactly like Oktoberfest but instead of a stein of beer you get a massive ½ litre glass of wine with your sausages, sauerkraut and pretzels! Ben stuck to the manly rose wine by the ½ litre…always a funny sight and we messed around on the funfair and won ourselves a new van mascot – 'Marmot’ the Bear. Not as many Lederhoen & Durdel as ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Klosterstuble Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay at the Hotel Klosterstuble
My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Klosterstuble for one night in May and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very centrally located, minutes from the main square. Our room was cozy and quaint, with beautiful wood furniture and a nice couch and chair. The bathroom was a little small but typical of most European hotels we have stayed in. The breakfast was wonderful; quite a spread and the best breakfast of our trip! We would be delighted to stay there again, and plan on doing so during our next visit to Rothenburg.
Quiet and charming
Arriving in Rothenburg late afternoon in early September of 2004, it was very pleasant to find our accommodations were located on a quiet side street. The staff was warm, the food was good, the site was within steps of both the main street and the valley behind.
That night we enjoyed a memorable lantern walk touring the city and learning its amazing history. My husband enjoyed this site more than any other in all of Germany. I would love to return during the winter holiday season. The hotel's email address is permanently saved in my address book.
A vacation in itself!
Wonderful quaint hotel that gives you the feel of a B&B! Rooms were spotless with the best shower in Europe! The service was outstanding from all (English-speaking). Dinner in their restaurant downstairs was exceptional! A great value at E90.
My husband and I spent a night at this wonderful property in May, 2004. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer.
We had a room on the top floor (well worth the stairs) and our window opened up on an amazing view across Rothenburg. The room was decorated in a warm, provincial style. The bath was small, but well-organized.
The dining room downstairs serves wonderful food (we had dinner and wine, delicious) and the breakfast that is included with the room is quite nice.
The location is perfect - near the gardens and in a low-traffic section of this small, beautiful town. The service was excellent and friendly.
I cannot recommend this Hotel enough. You won't be disappointed.
Great little Bed and Breakfast Inn
Went there September 2nd-
This is a great bed and breakfast in the wonderful medieval city of Rothenburg Ob der Tauber. Good value for the euro and great service. No elevator - you've got climb the winding staircase. The rate includes breakfast. It is a small hotel of 13 rooms but are expanding to the building next door which will give them an additional 22 rooms. You can book the hotel on the internet just by typing in Rothenburg hotels
This hotel is mentioned in the Rick Steve's book as well. Go by his reccommendations for hotels and restaurants and shopping - he is right on! Don't miss the Night Watchman's Tour in the square.
Great Place to Stay
We stayed at this hotel in March 2003. We liked it so much, we brought our three sons back this April and stayed again. The 5-person room was tight, but super clean and had a very up-to-date, clean, bright bathroom. The rooms are nicely decorated. I feel their rates are very reasonable. Our breakfasts were included and were wonderful; diner was great too.
Very pleased with Hotel Klosterstuble
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Klosterstuble in March 2002. We can't think of one negative thing to say about this small, family run hotel.
Very charming atmosphere, excellent location, with very clean and comfortable rooms. Excellent value. Would not stay anywhere else while in Rothenburg.
Great family run hotel
We booked over the internet and stayed for 1 night. Erika, who co-owns the hotels went out of her way to accomodate us and our 4-year old child, including getting him some yogurt after the restaurant had closed. Great location in the heart of old town, and service above expectations. Parking is a little tight in front of the hotel
Our favorite place to stay
The Klosterstuble is our favorite place to stay when we are in Rothenburg. In fact we have stayed there 3 times in the last 5 years and are taking a group of our friends there this December.
In the summer of 2002, we were eating breakfast and Rick Steeves (writes travel books) came in and sat next to us. If he stays there you know its pretty good.
It is located very near the markplatz on a side street. The staff are very friendly, rooms are charming, and everything is immaculate.
Our favorite room is #1.
I stayed at the Klosterstuble in October 2001. It was easy to find, located conveniently in a quiet part of the old city, by the Castle Garden wall, and right next to the best part of old town center. The couple that run it were very cooperative and helpful. I loved my room (top floor single w/shower). Quaint, comfortable, extremely clean, tastefully decorated, very quiet and private. The rate was only $55/night, including fruhstuck (breakfast), which was very good.
