BURG-HOTEL 3 estrellasKlostergasse 1-3, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Alemania
Situated on top of Rothenburg's medieval town wall, the Burg-Hotel offers 15 elegant rooms and suites each with view of the pastoral Tauber river valley or the lovely garden of the adjoining 12th century monastery. Each room is decorated uniquely and all are stylish, comfortable, and capture the magic of romantic Rothenburg. Enjoy the serenity of the garden, breakfast on top of the wall, and the hotel's classic cars that are available for your special event. From the hotel's main entrance, a few meters walk along the base of the medieval wall will take you to the Burgtor (Castle Gate circa 1356) and entrance to the expansive and pleasant Burg gardens. The gate features two unusual round guard towers, a mask through which Rothenburg defenders would pour hot tar on enemies, and the eye-of-the-needle door within a door. The Rothenburg imperial castle (circa 1142) was located in the large garden plateu. The castle was destroyed in the earthquake of 1356. The only surviving building, the prison was rebuilt (circa 1400) by famous Mayor Toppler into the Chapel of St. Blaise.The Hotel's 800 year history. We wish you a pleasant visit.
