One of the most significant architecture of Rothenburg, and most likely the first entrance visitors would encounter upon arriving from the direction of the train station. The silent fortifications were still as sturdy when I saw them up close though I could imagine them losing...More

Just like you can't leave home without it - you must take in this site and snap many pictures. Like the rest of the city it is so iconic.

This is an interesting part of the wall that is still in good condition around the old town of Rothenburg .Much photographed by visitors.

I lost count of the number of gates into and out of this walled town. All of them slightly different and all with their own unique style. Fascinating to see so many double gates as they obviously expanded the town as it grew in stature.

this is one of the gates at the far end of the town but well worth the walk to see this part of the walls as its so different and imagine it in days gone by

This is a very nice gate where one can get some very good photos, there is a small section of the moat, with water still in it, and there are stairs leading up to the wall. There are several good photo opportunities just a short...More
