I guess you can say I’m saving the best for last cause even though Rothenburg was one of my first stops during our Germany/Austria trip, I am just now posting about it. After one night in Munich, I woke up early the next morning and started my road trip to Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
Rothenburg is a well preserved medieval town and a part of Germany’s Romantic Road. Its picturesque setting not only inspired the village for the 1940 Disney movie Pinocchio, but social media is also flooded with pictures of this uber cute town.
The second I arrived in Rothenburg, I was in love. It was everything I hope it would be and more. After dropping off my bags at the hotel, I immediately hit the ground running. First stop, the iconic “it” spot, the Plönlein. I remember first seeing a picture of the Plönlein a few years ago in an image gallery of random internet pictures. I remember screenshotting the picture and telling myself, a. I have to figure out where this is, and b. after I find out, I have to go there one day.
After taking a million pictures (you cannot visit Rothenburg without maxing out your memory card, hence why I’m breaking this up into two parts), I started making my way to the wall that encircles the town. It took me a while to get up to the wall since a couple entrances were closed due to construction but nevertheless, I made it up there. From the wall, you get rooftop views and a behind the scenes look at life in Rothenburg. I think I walked about half of it before making my way back down to the cobblestone streets.
Once back down, I began just walking around aimlessly taking in all the history and beauty. I’m glad I got down where I did cause I got to see some really cute buildings full of bright, fun colors. I could walk around Rothenburg for
hours days and would not run out of things to take pictures of. Enjoy the pictures below and Happy Travel Tuesday everyone!

The post I am highlighting from last week’s Travel Tuesday is “Innsbruck, Austria” by Sara from A Different Piece of Sky. During our visit to Austria in the Spring, Jimmy and I didn’t get a chance to visit Innsbruck so I’m living vicariously through Sara’s beautiful pictures. Check out out Sara’s blog and follow along her European adventure!
