Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a town on the Romantic Road in Bavaria, Germany, about halfway in between Frankfurt and Munich. It is known for its medieval center (Altstadt), seemingly untouched by the passage of time, encircled by the undamaged 14th century town wall. In the Middle Ages, Rothenburg was a free imperial city, reaching its apex of prosperity under B├╝rgermeister Heinrich Toppler in the 15th century with a large population of 6,000 – much larger than Frankfurt and Munich at that time. Now Rothenburg is a small town and a big tourist attraction.
