Saturday Snapshot - Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Seeing last week's photos posted by  West Metro Mommy Reads reminded me of our trip to Germany in 2007. In fact, one of her pictures looked very familiar. It turns out that we took a photo on the very same street! So I've posted it along with a few others.

Our visit to Germany was in autumn. I'm ready to go back to Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

We had a great time exploring the cobblestone streets of this small town.
The surrounding countryside.

Great views from the wall that surrounds the town. Autumn colors were glorious.

Walking along the perimeter of the town wall.

  1. I love seeing photos of Europe especially visitors photos. You see lots of professional photos in magazines and books, but seeing it through the eyes of someone visiting there is much more real for me. Have a great weekend, Sandra!

    1. I'm a firm believer in "do it NOW." After all, you never know when an illness may strike that will limit your accessibility. We went during the "shoulder" season (early autumn) when hotel rates were lower and crowds smaller.

  9. Now I want to go to Europe too! Well, maybe when my husband and I retire. For now, our visits are always to my home province of Newfoundland.

    Autumn is such a pretty season. I like old buildings and cobblestone too. Thanks for sharing!

  10. I was fortunate enough to be in Europe in the autumn too - it's a glorious time to meander along the winding, cobblestone streets, enjoying the colours in window boxes and parks and the blessed cooler weather.
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane :-)
