Travel Tales and Pictures

Travel Stories and Photographs by John.


Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany - Bavaria - Drei

The pictures ENLARGE if you click on them.
Rothenburg, a German medieval walled town.

In a previous posting I wrote about the clock tower story, but more interesting than watching the clock is watching the people watch the clock.

Inside St. Jakob's Church is the 12 Apostles altar from 1546. It is permanently left in its open festival-day position.

Inside St. Jakob's Church is the 500 year old "Altar of the Holy Blood" by Tilman Riemenschneider.

The pictures ENLARGE if you click on them.

During the day Rothenburg is busy with tourists, but Catherine and I spent the night and practically had the town to ourselves.

Examples of Schneeballen, a Rothenburg specialty that is a terrible tasting pastry.
