The good old days...

Putting aside the question of whether these days really were so great, it is important that the past centuries should not be completely lost to us. Hundreds of Rothenburg’s townsfolk are members of historical reenactment groups, reviving a bygone age or re-establishing a traditional profession. Thousands of yards of fabric are worked to reproduce the original fashions of the day, old equipment is brought out of retirement or reproduced in loving details. Preserving and revitalizing the past – this is the motto of the Imperial City Festival.

 

On Friday evening there is a grand torch-light procession by the various historical groups to the Market Square. With thundering cannons and a glittering display from the brand firework spectacular in the Tauber Valley, the town sinks into darkness on Saturday night, only to continue the light-hearted festivities next morning.

 

Celebrate with us and experience history as never before: up close, happy and rumbustious.
