Rothenburg Town Walk
Rothenburg — nearly a thousand years old — is one of the best-preserved medieval towns anywhere. It’s a world of cobbled lanes, half-timbered homes, and stone towers — all surrounded by a town wall.

Great info; difficult track interface
I buy the Rick Steves guidebooks & really like his style & information. However, these audio tours do not have the track interface that he always says that he has. It is one track with all sites listed one after another and it is not broken out into several different tracks like he repeatedly says he has. Too bad, this makes it difficult to use.
