The day following our trip to Neuschwanstein Castle we went to the medieval walled town of Rothenburg, which dates back to around AD 970. It has to be one of the most delightful towns I've ever visited, with its quaint buildings and cobbled streets. Its full name is 'Rothenburg ob der Tauber', which means in German, 'Red fortress above the Tauber', the town being located on a plateau overlooking the Tauber River. As to the name Rothenburg, it's said to come from the German words Rot (Red) and Burg (burgh, medieval fortified town), referring to the red colour of the roofs of the houses which overlook the river. Siebers Tower is one of many clock towers in the town, and is seen here in the centre.
