    The climb is strenuous and breaking ramps are very very cramped. Would not recommend it to those who suffer from motion or for the disabled. Attention you enter and climb without paying then the ticket office is at the top after so much effort you are almost forced to pay to get out and see the city from above

    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 »

  • 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
