Walk atop Rothenburg’s city walls or climb to the top of the town hall for great views. The Night Watchman tour is an unforgettable way to learn the city’s history. And our travelers also recommend the Medieval Crime Museum (Mittelalterliches Kriminalmuseum)—it’s gruesome but fascinating.

Rothenburg has made a concerted effort to preserve its medieval heritage, and Old Town reflects the historic fruits of this labor.
Beautiful walled city in Germany took on a special flare on a rainy day with the evening lights reflecting off the cobblestone pavement. The old city inside the walls was a magical walk through time although the stores offered beautiful items from today. Be sure to try one of the many bakeries and the meat markets which had a wonderful variety of delectable meats. Only wish we had more time to explore. Disappointed that one of the scenic entry towers from the brochures had a large white tent blocking the scenic view during the holiday season.

After having visited Lucca, Italy and Kirchheim unter Tech, Germany...a few other places as well, I don't know that I've ever seen such a well-preserved Roman-era fortified city in my life. It's got layers too, historically speaking that is.
There are lots of facts out there, so I won't ruin your browsing and research pleasure, but Rothenburg o. d. Tauber is a truly magnificent walled city.

Everybody who wanted to enter or to exit from Rothenburg town would pass Das Plonlein. The spot was always appeared on postcards or movies which represented that you were in Rothenburg. The crossroad was photogenic and being a photo stop for all passers-by. Do take a photo when you pass by this spot next time.

The city hall of this picturesque, undeveloped village reflects its anachronistic spirit.
The town hall is stately and beautiful and right in the middle town of time. It's hard to miss while exploring Rothenburg.

Take a walk to the end of the street. Go through the tunnel under the tower and you will see a very nicely maintained garden. The surrounding walls are short so they offer an expansive view of the valley below. This is a must-see while in Rothenberg.

An elegant residential street near the city center.
This quite long cobblestone street is lined with wonderful buildings on either side most of which have shops or cafes/restaurants at street level. There is tons of pedestrian traffic.

This building is located between the Röder- and the Gallows tower.The building is a reconstruction after complete damaging at the bombardment of the second world war in 1945. Since 1951 it came back with its elegant gables, the nice windows and its colorful coat of arms panel. It shows a crowned snake which was designed by the legendary blacksmith Georg Gerlach. The building is closed since 1967 and now it is in private hands.

This tower with its altitude of 30 meters served a practical purpose since the 16th. century. They installed a copper boiler and made it as a water tower which provided water to the tube Fountains of the city. This Klingen gate has another speciality. It shares a wall with the St. Wolfgangs church. So you could enter the tower from inside the church. Under the church they built casemates to fight against the attacker who got to the trench.

Walk through to enter the old city of Rothenburg. As you enter through the gate you feel as if you are stepping back in time.
Go straight ahead up the hill to the main square of the town or head off to the right and walk along the top of the wall protecting the town.
A fitting entrance to a fascinating city.

As the town expanded, they moved the walls out, but this gate from the old wall remains and is partnered with the lovely building just outside it. It is very striking to see this tower popping out from inside the city instead of at the wall, but it gives you an idea about the city's growth and how they adapted to change. An excellent photo op.
