  • If the following lines for you are helpful, I would be happy with a click on "Thank you, Thomas O.". The Topplerschlösschen is also something particularly because it does not seem to the official Rothenburg - repertoire to include. As in any of the numerous laid-out brochures, this landmark is mentioned greatly. Some locals likes to say the tourist to shop in Rothenburg. Who invested time to go down there, which emits nothing. The castle garden, the Topplerschlösschen is easily reached in about 20 minutes. The trail is not well signposted, only it is also hard to miss. Through fruit plantations it descends to a small wooden bridge (sometimes sharply). Turn left direction "Fox mill", and you're there. Basically, there's no opening times. We often visit Rothenburg and already had the good fortune to meet someone there. For very little money was admitted us and we saw interesting. A the institution from a bygone era over two floors. Where our nose us attention made it, there could be moisture damage halfway house. On the other hand we listened to, what an elderly gentleman told us. Not only to the history of this small house and its owners. But much more his interesting views to the beautiful Rothenburg in itself. It can go back as an alternative at the Tauber along to the hospital bastion. Although a bit longer, but the view is worth. It shows why Rothenburg was not accessible during the middle ages from this page. Conclusion: Who lingers in the beautiful Rothenburg, and want to switch in between times a little, for going to the Topplerschlösschen in the Tauber Valley is the right place.

  • Up close I saw wasn't impressed as much as when I saw the photo. If it is the way you ... a commemorative photograph good and nothing more.
