  • Museum showing the history of the village, including the dungeons. It is worth a visit, to understand the life of this beautiful medieval village.

  • Excellent views after a narrow ladder climbing. Woman at the top not very kind but never minds, we brought sympathy with ourselves :)  more »
  • If you don't have a good physical fitness and is claustrophobic, don't go, especially in the summer. It's cramped and stuffy. Use a clothes and comfortable shoes. The view is beautiful, but if you don't have much time to visit the city, give preference to walk and get lost in the medieval streets, the houses and the gardens are beautiful.

  • 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...
  • Hard to climb all those stairs, but the view up there is surely worth it
  • Don't miss the metal measuring rods of Rothenburg o.d.T. right next to the gate.
  • Interesting
