I would highly recommend anyone going to Rothenburg to stay a couple nights in town, and preferably at the Burg-Hotel ;). We were a large family traveling and we stayed in a double room as well as the private suite.

A most beautiful hotel in an amazing town.

The hotel is beautifully furnished with a comfortable large clean room and situated on the wall of the Town with amazing views over the Tauber valley from the breakfast room and terrace. The breakfast menu is more than adequate and the staff were absolutely lovely!

The hotel is only a very short walk to the town centre, the Christmas markets and other attractions.

We stayed two nights just before Christmas to experience the old village. We decided to stay within the walls and had no trouble with access or parking in their barn (10 euro per night). The hotel is set against the wall, and has nice views of the landscape beyond the wall.

It’s quiet and away from the bustling area. Otto made us feel very welcome and at home! Breakfast was nice with a good range of food. We stayed in a double room, and it was very spacious with separate lounge area and a bathtub. Easy 5min walk to market square.

A breakfast buffet is complimentary. Other amenities consist of a sauna, an exercise room and a modest restaurant, as well as a hot tub. Parking is available.

My room was a single on the 3rd floor (there’s an elevator) on the street side of the building and was SO charming! The wood furniture was painted blue (with floral detail) and included a small love seat and a table for work space. The bed was tucked in an alcove, making it feel extra cozy, and through the windows you could look across the tops of the Rothenburg buildings. The breakfast buffet included hot and cold options.

We visited in December as part of a Christmas markets tour and the location of this hotel could not have been better. It was within walking distance of the market and shopping, but just enough removed that it was quiet and restful. I hope to visit again one day.

Hotel is inside the wall with great access to the stairs for a wall walk around and near the Christmas Market.

The Tilman makes you feel like part of the family, would recommend everyone stay here.

This lovely family-run hotel is situated inside the walking precinct of the Old Town of Rothenburg. Our room was a good size, with a very comfortable bed and a modern bathroom. It was spotlessly clean. A car parking area is just a few minutes walk just around the corner from the hotel.

The continental breakfast offered cereals, fruit and a good selection of meats, cheeses, lovely bread, rolls and pastries.

The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the town square with its beautiful Christmas markets. The whole town of Rothenburg is exquisitely decorated for Christmas and the Hotel Tilman is no exception. Many wonderful shops and fabulous restaurants are within a few minutes walk.

A tour with the Night Watchman is fun, as is walking around the city walls, which are open all night (take a torch).

We loved our stay in Rothenburg and would thoroughly recommend the Hotel Tilman Riemenschneider.
