Rothenburg, Germany

One of the best medieval towns on Romantic Road of Germany, Rothenburg, I was there. A small town easily covered on foot, delighted me with its simplicity. Walking through the covered town wall gave a great view of the town’s roofs of the medieval houses, the winding narrow streets (no vehicles are allowed inside), chimney pots and church steeples.



The streets are dotted with barns that have been converted to hotels, the place is filled with tourists but those don’t spoil the beauty. The pictures are taken from one of the watch towers. You can imagine how well the fort was protected in those days. The last picture has the facades of the buildings there.
