Rothenburg an old town

While on a holiday….there is usually one place which gets etched in ones memory…even today I remember a little mountain town called Wengen in Switzerland ,or Volendam a quaint fishing village in Amsterdam…

This time …rothenburg a 1000 yr old town…where it looks like time has stood still…

The same old homes remain…the little doors…the cobbled stone streets…

This is a photo blog of that little old town…

As you enter the town…

 

Little old homes…with little doors!

 

The narrow streets..!

 

A thousand year old well…

 

1374….is the date on pharmacy shop

 

The clock at exactly 12…in the afternoon…enacts a scene where the French general asks the town mayor to drink 3 lts of beer at one go within a minute to save his town!!..every tourist will be here to watch this …

 

One of the many towers

 

There is something mystical…here…

 

 

 

 

From top of the hill

 

 

From any corner …it is picture perfect…

 

 

And while in rothenburg …a must eat is this snowball….a local delicacy …made of flour,egg yolks …wine…and served sprinkled with powdered sugar…delicious indeed..,

After a walk of the town…a cup of German coffee…a snowball & a German pretzel…we drove back to Frankfurt …

 

But this old town…with lot of character…lot more stories…remained with me
