We had visited Rothenberg in the early '90s and had been jonesing to get back there again. Not much has changed. Actually, not much has changed since the 1100s. I was intrigued by the vines over many of the buildings. Conventional wisdom here at home is to NEVER attach vines to your house, you'll be in for a world of (financial) hurt at some point when you need to paint or repair. But we typically don't live in centuries old walled cities. Gated? Yes. But that's different.

This only gives encouragement to an urban gardener on a small lot, like myself.
