Somewhat like Venice, Rothenburg has the characteristic of feeling much quieter and more authentic if you take a few steps off of the most popular arterial routes and central sights. We took a short walk through some of these back ways, enjoying the solitude and increased sense of authenticity.

Near the city hall, I lost the others to the clutches of a huge Christmas store for the better part of an hour. I stationed myself on the edge of the nearby George's Fountain (Georgsbrunnen) in the Marktplatz and watched the crowds come and go - as well as attempting a few time-lapse videos.

After the Christmas-craft shopping was over, we returned to Schmiedgasse, where we had seen a couple of shops selling tasty-looking food. After a quick street-side lunch, it was time to think about moving on. A final walk through the old town brought us to the Würzburger Tor gate and the carpark immediately on the other side.
