Bird song, warm rays from the sun, new buds and colourful blossoms: Spring awakens all the senses. That's why there is a celebration in Rothenburg the "Frühlingserwachen" with events, exhibitions and guided tours. The town organises classical music concerts, wine tasting and guided tours, on which you can discover more about the regional traditions at the beginning of spring. Part of the celebration also involves decorating the town fountains with ornately hand-painted Easter eggs, flowers and garlands. If you enjoy hiking, you can also sign up to a guided tour during "Rothenburg Spring Hiking Week" and discover some truly charming and idyllic locations. The picturesque streets in Rothenburg and the hiking routes also have their charm during the other seasons, of course. So a return trip is always worth the effort. And the best thing is that you can buy "snowballs" all year round. These are a type of sweet, crispy shortcrust pastry cakes, and are the local delicacy of Rothenburg.
