  • The Museum around the thirty years war and the legend of the "master trunk", destroyed by General Tilly, it kept the Rothenburg troops, is a Museum from the 60s. You can see that to the presentation. Many s / w pictures. If you engage it, entering a gem. You can see life-size dolls that play are clothed with the costumes of the master trunk in dioramas. The dolls themselves are probably from the 30s 40s. The costumes for the part from the late 20s. Alone this loving and old fashioned design lends charm. It is tough in the hole prisons, the so-called State vault that is preserved in its original condition. Here the famous Rothenburg Mayor Toppler is probably starving 1408 after 3 months in prison. You can enter his cell. Children may put an old helmet on here sometimes.

  • in this kleienn Museum it is possible the master trunk Cup (capacity 3.25 l) admire and watch the master trunk scene trailing with dolls. Other scenes of history are represented with dolls. Via a narrow staircase you go down in the Dungeon and torture chamber. Nice to look at more is available but in the crime Museum.

  • No visit is complete without going up the tower - the views are stunning. It takes an effort but well worth it
  • 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.
