The name of the church is already an indicator: Rothenburg ob der Tauber is situated along the Ways of Saint James to Santiago de Compostela. Over 1000 pilgrims arrive at St. James Church each year. World-famous: the impressive Holy Blood Altar by Tilman Riemenschneider. This is something you can’t miss – but a detailed visit of St. James Church, built from 1311 to 1484, is worthwhile for many other reasons. We’ll tell you why.A relic in a Protestant church? It might seem strange at first sight, but it actually makes sense. The Riemenschneider altar was not destroyed during the shift of faith (St. James was once an early Christian church and till 1554 a catholic one). The wooden altar in the western high choir represents the last supper. The relic is in the cross above the detailed carvings – wine from the mass, the blood of Jesus, was poured on a cloth. The altar offers several other surprising features: It’s recommended that you participate in one of the daily church tours of St. James so you don’t miss any of the altar’s secrets. https://www.rothenburg-tourismus.de/en/discover/the-highlights-of-rothenburg-ob-der-tauber-top10-sights/st-james-church/
Gruesome, scary or just: highly informative. This is one way to describe the Medieval Crime and Justice Museum of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

And is it also suitable for children? https://www.rothenburg-tourismus.de/en/discover/the-highlights-of-rothenburg-ob-der-tauber-top10-sights/medieval-crime-and-justice-museum/

We explain why it’s worthwhile to spend some time in Rothenburg’s Castle Garden. https://www.rothenburg-tourismus.de/en/discover/the-highlights-of-rothenburg-ob-der-tauber-top10-sights/a-park-for-taking-a-break-rothenburgs-castle-garden/

На мой взгляд, самое лучшее пиво в мире! Монастырь Kreuzberg в Баварии, монахи варят пиво по "секретному", как они говорят, рецепту. В реальности, никаких секретов: отличный солод, свежесть - я спросил местных работников, они сказали что то пиво, что нам налили, сварили сегодня. И еще они добавляют травы, которые монахи собирают в горах. Между прочим, это не рекламная байка, трава чувствуется в пиве А потом мы пошли по лесу. Мне доверили держать Крёйсберговское пиво которое мы купили в монастыре, и я обнимал его, и лучистая пивная энергия, которая шла из большого темного бутыля, проникала в самое сердце, и становилось спокойно

In one of Germany's oldest planetariums you can immerse yourself in the fascinating world of stars, planets and galaxies. A lifelike starry sky enchants here in a form that can only be seen in very dark places or from outer space.
The Mannheim Planetarium in its present form was opened on 2 December 1984, after the first construction of 1927 had been severely damaged in the Second World War and then demolished. Nearly 300 spectators find space under the 20-meter dome. The 3 million euro projection device "Universarium IX", which was manufactured by Carl Zeiss AG, projects a lifelike starry sky that can only be seen in very secluded, dark places or from outer space. In addition, the planetarium has a modern laser system and powerful video projectors.
In addition to classical astronomy programs, the planetarium also offers music shows, lectures in various languages and special performances for children. https://www.visit-mannheim.de/Media/attraktionen/planetarium-mannheim
