Welcome to
Romantik Hotel Markusturm
in medieval
Rothenburg ob der Tauber!

Markus Tower & Roeder Arch
one of the most beautiful gateway structures in our medieval city.

Both were built at the same time as the first city ring wall around 1200 AD. Against this backdrop nestles a small tollhouse from the year 1264, a lodge providing shelter for travelers for over 500 years now. It has been in the Berger family for four generations – and has borne the name Romantik Hotel since 1972.
