“A tower with a view from the 13th centrury”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

We paid 2 euro to climb all 214 steps. Steep climb and a bit of a work out. Still.... well worth the view.

“Incredible View of Rothenburg”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

The tower offers a tremendous view, but beware that the steps are many and steep. This is NOT for those who suffer from agoraphobia in the slightest.

“Worth the Visit”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

At the town hall there is a tourist information, an opportunity to climb the town, and a small museum with the original jail cells in the basement...all of which was a little hard to find but a lot of fun and worth the search.

“Could be scary, great views”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

A steep climb to the top, not safe for some visitors, and not the most welcoming host at the top, but some amazing views of the city.
