Photographer's Note

Another shot in my series of Rothenburg Windows. This photo was taken at the start of the evening, so the brightness was diminishing. Again, the typical half-timber architectural style is visible. This patchwork of wooden beams sets each building apart from the next--every one offering a different organization of these beams to create a facade that is unique.

=========================================================

The name "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" means, in German, "Red fortress above the Tauber". This is so because the town is located on a plateau overlooking the Tauber river. As to the name "Rothenburg", some say it comes from the German words Rot (Red) and Burg (burg, medieval fortified town), referring to the red colour of the roofs of the houses which overlook the river. The name may also refer to the process of retting ("rotten" in German) flax for linen production.
