Notes on the Geography of Germany: Rothenberg ob der Tauber: Photo 18

world pictures Germany: Rothenberg ob der Tauber

In 1963, Erich Maria Remarque wrote of a post-war visit: "I came to Rothenburg. And here was suddenly peace. The town stood there as always with its nooks and walls and alleys and dreams, undisturbed by all the horrors, like a bastion of hope, of solace, and a second home for the distraught soul. It has remained that for me" (2006, p. 109). Of course it hadn't been undisturbed: photos from the 1930s show swastikas flying from many buildings, and much of what Remarque saw was new.

That's the city tower or Burgthor at the edge of town; it shows up on an 1899 tourist map.
