Fodor's Review

A Schäfertanz (Shepherds' Dance) was performed around the ornate Renaissance fountain on the central Marktplatz whenever Rothenburg celebrated a major event. While its origins go back to the feast day of local shepherd's annual gatherings, the dance is now celebrated with locals from the area costumed as maids, shepherds, soldiers and nobility. It takes place in front of the Rathaus several times a year, chiefly at Easter, on Whitsunday, and in September.
