Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Located near Ansbach, Rothenburg ob der Tauber or “”Red fortress above the Tauber” is a mid evil town that represents everything German. Today it is an attractive tourist location but long ago Rothenburg was Germany’s second largest city. Though it has certainly lost that title it still attracts quite a large crowd every day. Walking tours as well as access to the towns many museums can be had “almost” any day of the week. While it is extremely busy during the summer, you may just find yourself on a quiet walk in the city. Best bet is to plan to go early morning or late evening if you can. It is no coincidence that this destination is almost smack in the middle of our little red circle. This medieval town should make every service members list.
