The well-preserved historic townscape offers a unique sense of flair with its huge array of magnificent multi-storey, timber-framed houses (15th to 18th century), which highlight the wealth enjoyed by the trading and university town in centuries gone by. The "Hohe Schule" college attracted international students and the castle today houses a successor institution. Just next to this, the thousand-year-old town church overlooks the romantic old town. Given the title "Nassauisches Rothenburg" over a hundred years ago, you are sure to be captivated by this delightful half timbered town.
