Car: Recommended

The small town of Roettingen is still surrounded by the medieval town wall. Seven ( of 16 ) towers are still existing and one of those is our 'snail tower' about 18m high. You will estimate the mild climate with vineyards and also the famous Tauber valley bike trail. We recommend trips to Wuerzburg (~ 30 km ), Weikersheim ( ~ 10 km ), Rothenburg (~ 20 km ), Bad Mergentheim, Bronnbach Monastery, Tauberbischofsheim; Wertheim etc.

And you will be pleased as our house lies in a very calm lane without traffic.

Other Activities: airport for model planes,

Also a big playground as an 'outdoor showroom' with many interesting and funny products of Fa. EIBE.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We both come from Upper Franconia ( area of Bamberg ) and live in the historic town centre of Feuchtwangen between Dinkelsbuehl and Rothenburg, Ingrid is director of the 'house of history' in Dinkelsbuehl. Uli is musician and likes to play old and modern Keyboard instruments. Especially he likes playing historic organs.and is busy recording their characteristic sound.

Why the Owner Chose Röttingen, Germany:
We always wanted to buy a small house in a vine area of Franconia. So I made a date in the summer of 2006 with the former Mayor of Roettingen and a bank Manager from Wuerzburg. The result? We bought this small house and made a ´plan to modernize it to a comfortable Holiday house. So we invested a lot of. money. :-)) Now nearly all of our guests are very fond of it. That's fine!!!
