  • The Church of St. Wolfgang is situated next to the Klingenturm Tower and it's very beautiful outside. Inside I don't know why he paid to go and I don't think that justifies paying to enter a church.

  • This Late Gothic church is integrated into the weir installations of the city walls and touch the Klingen gate on one side. From outside strong in defense with small open areas to shoot out inside you...  more »
  • This church is situated near Klingentor. It is the first church, which we saw in Rothenburg, when logged in through the northern gate or sheep dogs. The Church has no Spire, therefore it is not possible to detect immediately. So much so that, after passing through the gate, your attention is immediately attracted to the cute Street leading to vidnejushhemusja ahead of the Cathedral. And, only looking back, you'll see right from the gate entrance into the Church, and above it is the stone statue of Christ and the stained-glass windows of the Church Hall. According to a legend the shepherds at this place along with the Holy Wolfgang prayed about protecting their sheep herds. The Church was built in the late 15th century. Inside are several fine wooden altars from the 16th-century.

Where to stay in Rothenburg

Consider lodging in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast located in the city's Old Town. Lodging outside the walls may save a few dollars, however. Many lodging options are close enough to offer access to city sites on foot.
