“The highlight of the town”
Review of Das Plonlein

Das Plonlein
Ranked #3 of 68 things to do in Rothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 August 2018

This place is so unique it's amazing. The shops are traditional, the food is exquisite and the location is stunning. One of only three walled cities still intact in Germany and well worth a visit. The market square house opens it's windows as the clocks strike on the hour, while the nightwatchman can tell a tale or two to visitors about the crooks of the town.

Great area for pictures, shopping or just to see how life was in the past- google a picture from 1900 and it looks basically identical to what you see now. The area is best visited in the morning or evening because it gets BUSY in the afternoon. Note that cars are allowed in there which is a shame because it would be much better as a walking area.

Don't forget to try the local specialty of schneeballen while there.

Has to be done, worth getting up for early to see it deserted . A very popular place and so easy to photograph .

So romantic, lovely architecture, lots of shops and places to eat. We stayed in the city center so we were up and out early before the hordes of tour groups arrived.
