1631. The war has been raging in the country for thirteen long years.
In the autumn of 1631, the Catholic Generalissimo Johann T’Serclaes Imperial Count von Tilly with 60,000 men penetrates to the walls of the Protestant imperial city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
On October 31, the resistance is broken, the city stormed and mayors and all councillors sentenced to death. A magnificent tankard, an unusual trade and an incredible deed bring the happy turn.
Since 1881, the stage play, The master Draught’ played by citizens of Rothenburg in the town`s imperial hall is performed annually. Since 2016 it belongs to the “Cultural heritage” of UNESCO at the federal level
