We loved walking the town walls as it gave us a birds eye view of Rothenburg and the surrounding countryside. This historic town is just amazing.

So much of Germany was destroyed in WWII. Here you get to see some of the best that survived. Take a walk through history.

Rothenburg is one of absolute favorite cities in the world! I loved waking up in the morning and walking along the walls to view the city. I look forward to coming back!

WE walked down hill through the old town and back through the town using the wall. It was a great view of the town. You can just picture the guards on the wall protecting their town.

There were lots of places to look out the outer walls and imagine what it must have been like for the night watchmen. It was also fun to look into the backyards in the old city and to watch cars fit through the... More

I think it best to hire a walking tour guide the first time to visit. There is so much history and you will miss it if you just walk the walls. I walked here on crutches the first time, though it was a little difficult.
