The City Councillors' Tavern (1446) (die Ratstrinkstube) - is indeed one of the most famous buildings in Rothenburg. It was accessible only to the city councillors. Especially noteworthy are the various clocks. The main clock was installed in 1683. Beginning in 1910, the two windows located to the right and left of the town clock open every hour between 11.00 a.m. and 03.00 p.m. and between 08.00 p.m. and 10.00 p.m. to show the legendary Master Draught (der Meistertrunk).

The City Councillors' Tavern (1446) now serves as the Tourism office for Rothenburg ob der Taube.
