The place to be during the Christmas Market
Posted Nov 29, 2016
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is the Christmas card of Germany with its medieval history. The Hotel Eisenhut is next door to the largest Christmas decoration stores in the town and is in the heart of the Christmas market which begins just before the first Sunday in Advent. Parking is difficult, so book your garage, something I had not done. To drive up to the hotel is challenging during the market time because it is a pedestrian zone, however, there is no other way to reach the hotel. Once there, the bellman took my suitcases and showed me the room. I had left my car in front of the hotel, while we both walked about 3 blocks away to get a parking spot, he waited there while I got the car, got the parking sticker and then parked in the spot he held for me. Three others had tried to get the spot. He got a generous tip of course, but I doubt this level of service exists in many places. The next morning he and other staff people greeted me by name!
