Rothenburg Christmas Market | PHOTO GALLERY

Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a historic Southern German town encompassed by walls that used to serve as barriers to threats. This walled town has become more and more touristy over the years, but is still so charming that a visit cannot be ignored. Part of the town was destroyed during World War II, but many of the buildings remained intact and date back hundreds of years. The Christmas Market fills the streets with gluhwein and trinkets for sale, and is heaven for those that love this time of year.
