Where in the World is Gary? #175

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#175) is Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber, Germany

This place lies at the tip of a lesser known cape. It was a “dry” town until 2005. It was also mentioned in Kipling’s Captains Courageous.
