Rothenburg Visit - Parking

I have been looking at a Google Map overhead view of Rothenburg and it appears that there is a large parking area to the north of the walled area on Bezoldweg, another to the east off of Schweinsdorfer Strasse and another to the south off of Nordlinger Strasse (sorry I don't know how to make am umlaut on an American keyboard).

The lot closest to the center of town seems to be the parking area to the north, but I thought I would ask if anyone has experience with parking at Rothenburg and might have a recommendation.

I don't know how to make am umlaut on an American keyboard

If you really care, there are several ways to get the umlauted letters on a PC..

Copy and paste from the Character map. (Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Character map)

Hold down the alt key and type the following on the numeric keyboard:

  • ä 0228

  • ö 0246

  • ü 0252

  • ß 0223

Capitals 32 less

But, a following 'e' can be substituted for the umlaut - Noerdlingen for Nördlingen (the German Rail website recognizes this). There is historic significance for the oe, since ö was originally written in Sütterlin (old German handwritting) script as the letter with a superscript 'e', which looked a little like o", u", etc.

On a pad fauxboard, I think you just press and hold the letter key, and it will "scroll" through the possibilities around that letter.

Just go for the lot immediately outside of Würzburger Tor (on the ast side). The entire Altstadt is within a walkable distance. As long as you park just outside the wall, the rest doesn''t really matter. You'll see the signs directing you where to go

Thanks all.

Sounds like the East Lot it is.
