  • It is very interesting climb a wall access (at Schrannenplatz has one) and walk for her. It's all covered, so even very cold and rain is a drive that can do it.

  • If you are in Rothenburg, take an hour and walk the entire town. We walked at sunset/dusk and the views of the town and countryside are amazing. In the evening it is especially charming. 
  • As Gargan gate past the radar Gates walked. Width 1 m long road, have flat feet have railings. Because the ceiling is in the rain, just good. Or the Tower there is a small gun window, such as Office of the soldier. There are many great views of the city from here is fun enough just walking along,. Town of red-roofed buildings and interior is St. Jacob's church tower in the distance. I wanted to walk in time if you can afford more.
