Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Bavaria Germany

Rothenburg ob der Tauber, a town in Middle Franconia (Germany, Bavaria), is the Plönlein.
To the left you see the Siebersturm and to the right the Kobolzeller gate. You can walk down to the gate in the direction of the Tauber valley. If you have time, you should walk through the gate, because from there you have a magnificent cityscape to the southern of Rothenburg. The Plönlein with the half-timbered house is probably the best known motif and is photographed hundreds of times by tourists daily.
The name "Plönlein" comes from Latin (planum) and means level/lowlands.
