(25+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
Get an intimate tour of a small medieval castle in the Tauber valley at Toppler Castle, once both the summer residence and defensive tower for the powerful Lord Mayor Heinrich Toppler. Built in 1388, the small medieval castle now houses furniture from the 16th to 19th centuries. To enter, ring the bell outside the property to alert the owner. Walk up the steep stairs to see the sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, and library, and to learn more about the structure's history. Take a minute to notice the gardens outside, which could be flooded in case of attacks. Check the website for hours. Make Toppler Castle a centerpiece of your Rothenburg vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Rothenburg vacation route planner.
