At Burggarten, you can stroll through the garden during the day or see it at night with the Night Watchman's tour. The garden trails introduce a diverse selection of flowers, well-kept lawns, and interesting garden sculptures, while a path along the city wall overlooks the valley, with its small villages and winding roads.

Walking through the western gates of the walled city of Rothenburg, you find yourself wandering into the Burggarten. like the rest of the city, this park area sits high above the river and puts you outside the wall for some lovely views of the countryside as well as the southern portion of the city. Back in the day (way way back) this part had its own structures that have mostly been lost to time. in their place are large trees that provide a lot of shady spaces and benches to walk about and sit and relax. Definitely worth checking out as part of your stop in Rothenburg.
So pretty. Perfect place to walk, and a little quieter than the main town.
