this was a very interesting part of the city wall, great photo stop and easy to find and easy to climb up stairs to walls. It is probably one of the more famous of the towers.

This gate/tower is a bit off by itself, but nothing in Rothenburg is too far from anything else. The tower is in excellent condition and while not as ornate as some of the other towers is still impressive. Also the gate leads to the magnificent...More

All the original history here is amazing when you consider it was partially bombed. From walking the rampart, staying inside the walls and just walking around, I have loved visiting here.
