Rothenburg is one of the most picturesque and attractive touristic Highlight in Germany. The City of Rothenburg attracts visitors from around the Globen due to it looking like a town straight out of the middle ages.

The "Taubertal" is a beautiful winding valley that follows the river Tauber.

Along the route from Rothenburg to Wertheim are various points of interest to observe. Some of the many Highlights include historical Castles, old Churches, beautiful Bridges, and ancient City-Walls, all embedded in lovely small green Hills and combined like a chain.


The running route is situated on the public bicycle path that follows the route of the river Tauber through the valley. The landmark from Rothenburg to Wertheim is called "The lovely Tauber-Valley"

The route of the "Taubertal 100" is mostly flat in an undulating and interesting landscape. The 20 Checkpoints along the running track are situated at 5 km intervals.
