Rothenburg, Germany

Along with its two neighbours (Dinkelsbühl and Nördlingen to the south) it is a prime example of a walled medieval town - one of the only ones left in Germany - and its beautiful buildings, walls and alleys have led to it becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in Bavaria.
