Rothenberg - Germany

Rothenberg is located in south-central Germany above the deep Tauber River valley between W├╝rzburg and the Bavarian Alps. The town is encircled by many towered walls and is one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Germany. Its notable landmarks include the Gothic and Renaissance town hall with a Baroque arcade and the Church of St. Jacob (1373-1528) with a wooden altar by Tilman Riemenschneider. It was first mentioned in the 9th century and was besieged and captured in 1631 Johann Tserclaes Tilly. Rothenberg was supposedly spared when a citizen accepted a dare from the enemy to drink more than three quarts of wine at one gulp. The event is commemorated every Whitsuntide by the performance of a play, Der Meistertrunk ("The Master Gulp"). There are more than 30 cruises calling at this port.
