German term or phrase: mit geschlossenem Fachwerkbestand
In an article aimed at tourists:

Besuchenswert sind aber auch viele kleinere Städte, etwa Wetzlar mit geschlossenem Fachwerkbestand, Limburg und sein großartiger Dom oder das mondäne Bad Homburg mit Landgrafenschloss, Kurpark und dem nahen Römer-Kastell Saalburg.

entire parts of town consist of half-timbered buildings
Explanation:
My suggestion is based on the assumption, that parts of Wetzlar, maybe the centre, has many "Fachwerkhaeuser", if it is just the centre, change "entire parts of town" to "the entire city centre".

with rows of timber-framed houses


Explanation:
Fachwerk can be translated with half- timber or lattice work. Since the timber is visible (diagonnally, horizontally or vertically) I would say timber-framed houses. And 'geschlossener Bestand means probably remaining rows of houses.
