Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber was home to a large Jewish community from the 12th to 16th century and from 1875 to World War II. The city has some of the best preserved Jewish sites in Germany. The White Tower, part of the city’s fortifications, is attached to the Jews’ Dance House. 13th century Jewish tombstones are artfully imbedded in the ancient stone wall surrounding its garden. On Jews’ Lane stand buildings from the 13th and 14th centuries. The Reichsstadt Museum is also worth a visit.
