Rodertor, Rothenburg

For sweeping views across Rothenburg, climb to the top of Rodertor, part of the old city gate. Most visitors come to this town to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of bygone medieval days, and this structure draws big crowds with its 360-degree panorama, especially popular at sunset. Centuries ago the city executioner lived in this neighborhood and carried out harsh sentences in the moat just below the tower. Partially destroyed during World War II, the meticulously restored tower now serves as a romantic entrance into the city. Follow the medieval town wall, and don't forget to bring your camera.

  • If it crosses the door of Röder, their view will head to two small houses with pointed roof: custom and the checkpoint guards, flanking prior to Röder door portal. Back stretches the Barbican. From their towers, it was possible to attack the enemy, when it had already crossed the pits. The oldest part of the defensive complex is the main, from the 13th century tower. Framed plant was added later.

  • Entering 1/19/2018 from Munich in Germany, came to the town of day 3. Kurgan gate corridor, and we walked to the corpotsehrer gate. I think this gate from Kurgan gate gate of the third.

  • Had a great visit walking around Rothenberg and walking along the city wall was a highlight.
  • Beautiful towers can be found in this lovely town.
  • Very nice entrance to the city. Beginning of a wonderful visit. Two things you can do from here. Explore the walls on the inside that is highly recommended (is free). You can also climb to the tower which has a side. It is €2.5 and they charge them by surprise when you get up, you are warned. Impressive views of the site from here. You have many photos.
