Rodertor, Rothenburg

For sweeping views across Rothenburg, climb to the top of Rodertor, part of the old city gate. Most visitors come to this town to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of bygone medieval days, and this structure draws big crowds with its 360-degree panorama, especially popular at sunset. Centuries ago the city executioner lived in this neighborhood and carried out harsh sentences in the moat just below the tower. Partially destroyed during World War II, the meticulously restored tower now serves as a romantic entrance into the city. Follow the medieval town wall, and don't forget to bring your camera.

  • The entrance gate to the Rothenburg wall provides a medieval atmosphere. It is a narrow street, but because a car passes considerably, it is better to be careful.

  • The entrance to the shoring Rothenburg village from the train station. I dragged the carrier to the edge of the snow and went into the middle. It will arrive in 10 minutes. You can also take a walk through the walls. It was also locked inside.
