The next day in Rothenburg one of my must-sees was visiting this beautiful pink church that I had spotted the night before. Not only was I intrigued by the pink color, but I also loved the windows (especially the ones in the roof that look like eyes).
Upon entering St. John’s Church, I was a little surprised. This wasn’t what I was expecting the interior of this church to look like.
There was a lot less color, and the crucifix is unlike any other I’ve seen (which I loving dubbed “hashtag resurrection”). I was very interested to learn that this was created to show that the story didn’t end at the cross, but that it overcame death. This was very different than most Catholic churches.
This organ was really beautiful and I think it looks really nice against the plain, stone material.
In 1631, according to a local legend, Count Tilly was planning to invade Rothenburg, but decided to make him an offer… If he could drink an entire gallon of wine in one drink, the town would be spared. Well, Mayor Nusch was up for the challenge, and drank that entire gallon of wine in one gulp in this gorgeous square!
After walking around the Town Hall, we decided that we HAD to go to the Christmas Museum and shop. My mom and I are both huge fans of Christmas decorations! (Like, three Christmas trees in my one-bedroom apartment fan!) This was such a beautiful store and we had our beauties shipped home for safe-keeping!

This is one SERIOUS Christmas Tree… You need scaffolding to decorate it!
My mom also made my German dreams come true when she bought me this BEAUTIFUL cuckoo clock! So beautiful!
Stay tuned for a post on Munich early next week!
