  • Lots of beautiful views at the top but a steep tight climb to get there. Totally worth it if you have the strength. 
  • Walled town with beautiful scenery. Small but cozy. Worth the ride, yields beautiful pictures.

  • A series of reconstructions of the interiors and of medieval costumes at the time of the "Meistertrunk". Some news are interesting, but the environments themselves are not anything extraordinary. In the basement there are three small cells.

  • The Town hall is in the middle of the town, Got there about 4:30pm and the building look great in the day but at night it is the best. Best to go to this town before sunset the views is so beautiful.
  • Its a beautiful and Historic place... I liked it very much :) :) :) Don't miss this place if you come to Germany...
  • Don't miss the metal measuring rods of Rothenburg o.d.T. right next to the gate.

  • Nice Museum! Tells a lot about the history of the city during the 30 year war. Absolutely recommended!
