On Sonntag (Sunday) we took a day trip down to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Rothenburg is an old city built in the middle ages surrounded by a stone wall. The city seems to survive on tourism, however that does not take away from the feeling you get when looking through the ‘windows’ of the wall and imagine all the people who have looked through those windows as you are now doing, in the hundreds of years before you.

We had a late lunch in the Markt Platz
St Jakobs Kirsche is quite lovely and is said to have an altar that was carved by the ‘German Michelangelo’ of wood carving. We didn’t get a picture of the altar, you had to pay to get in, but from the outside I think you can see it is quite something.
Had to show this picture of the tiny streets between the homes, and also must tell that I drove the car in these streets, don’t think I’ve ever been so close to a wall in a car before!
