Rothenburg Historical Weekend June 2006

Has anyone been to Rothenburg during the festivites for the Master Draught play weekend? Is the town unbearably crowded? Or is it such a fun time that you don't mind the crowds? When I made my itinerary I included Rothenburg on this festive weekend so fortunately or not we will be there then.

I was there during the fest some years ago. Oh, my! It must be over 20 years ago! Anyway, the main square was filled with stands, but the rest of the town was busy, but not overly crowded. Maybe no more than other times I've been there. We didn't have tickets, but enjoyed seeing the town's people dressed up in the streets.

I was also there about 20 years ago for my honeymoon and it was during festival time(unknown to us until we got there). It is lively and alot of fun. The people are dressed in costume, riding on horses in the streets,music, crafts, etc..have fun! I love this place!

June 2 to 4th. I seemed to recall it was held a number of weekends in summer, but I guess not. It is held again in Sept. and Oct.
