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.

  • A building very curious because of the overlap of a "normal" House in a preexisting Tower, to form an Assembly completely out of the ordinary. We found always closed, although the hotel exactly ahead.

  • The castle is the residence of the significant Mayor of Rothenburg. Toppler has made to the city what it is today. The Interior shows a glimpse of in the earlier time and as the Mayor has lived. It is located beneath the city in the Tauber Valley and is well worth a visit.

  • How from a picture book of Tan the Topplerschlösschen in the Tauber Valley above all because it is what. Rustic, it's "ring" two pot lids. Also the excursion is small but fine. Has he gone there fun!
