I'm curious about your take on Rothenburg, Germany. Rick Steves loves this place, so I'm wondering - is Rothenburg all hype or is it a good place to visit?

I've heard Rothenburg is lovely. Especially around Christmas. Hell, all of Bavaria is lovely, especially around Christmas.

There are three Rotenburg in Germany I believe, but you probably talk about Rothenburg ob der Tauber. I spent two weeks there at the Goethe Institute for an intensive german course. Lovely is the best way to describe it, but there isn't a lot to do. It is a small town from the XXII century, that remained intact during WWII. Historicalywise interesting, and beautiful to the eye. Too many tourists... I was there in February and despite the cold, every weekend tourists filled up the old town.

Certainly worth a visit, but for a longer stay, you have to like it quiet !
