Rothenburg ob der Tauber (German pronunciation: [ˈʁoːtənbʊɐ̯k ɔp deːɐ̯ ˈtaʊbɐ]) is a town in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia), the Franconia region of Bavaria, Germany, well known for its well-preserved medieval old town, a destination for tourists from around the world. In the Middle Ages, it was an Imperial Free City.

Rothenburg is 1:30 to 2:00 from Stuttgart.  We would meet at the Hauptbahnhoff at 8:00AM and leave Stuttgart NLT 8:15 AM and hike one of the circuit hikes that starts and ends in Rothenburg.  If we finish by 14:00 we would also take the English language city tour (7 euros).  We would get something to eat/drink before heading back to Stuttgart. 

It looks like it will be a great hiking/touring day based on today's weather report.

I am going to limit the attendees to 4 (me plus three others).  If you can also drive, let me know how many you can take and we will bump up the limit.

This should be both a very nice hike and an interesting visit to a historical city.

    It was a great destination. I is about a 1:30 hour drive. Combining the three suggested hikes that circumnavigate the outside of the city walls took us a bit over two hours. We followed this with the 1:30 English city tour which was very good. It is worth a return trip when you have visitors in from hour of town. I’ll schedule a similar hike/city-tour for Freiburg or one of the towns on the Bodensee (Lake Constance) in May.

    This was my first trip to Rothenburg and it was a great introduction. The weather was fantastic, so the hike was great, with fantastic views of the city. The city tour was a nice touch too.

    Given that Doug can also drive, I'll increase the number of spots to 8 (4 in my car, 4 in Doug's car).
