Despite the kids' complaints, we walked the perimeter of town best we could, spending a good portion of it on the town walls. Great views, a few well placed playgrounds for the kids and the ability to tour with minimal other tourits around were the highlights of this wall.

The town walls of Rothenburg were built in 1172. From this first wall you can find until today the Markusturm, with the so called Röderbogen and the white Torturm. The Röderturm itself you can climb up. In the 14th century they have built a new wall ring around the suburbs. So you will find an impressive walkway around the old... More

It was a drizzling and the hotel suggest to walk the wall since it was covered. It was a great experience. Yes it was covered but it allowed us to see views of the old town that were quite enjoyable. We also observed local houses and gardens. At one of the towers there was a side walkway that brought us... More

A fantastic walk around the town. This attraction is free and is an incredible way of seeing the city. Simply climb any of the steps up to the elevated path and enjoy your scenic walk. Although, you must watch your footing as the stones can at times be uneven.

Enjoy great views of the whole city, river, parks and private gardens all around. Neat and clean, very well preserved, lets you make a good idea of what to visit and invites you to enjoy nice beers in charming beauty spots.

It was really fun getting to walk the walls around Rothenburg. It's a free activity and definitely worth doing if you're visiting! Provides a great view of the interior and also lets you look outside the walls as well.

Walking on the walls get you the best photos of the medival town, you get to see lovely roofs, beautiful gardens, good view of the town. I stayed two days and each day I would take a walk on the town walls, the narrow walkway is easy to navigate and when you bump into another group, everyone would just give... More

Walking the wall felt like something you just HAD to do while you were there. You can see the entire city from the walk and it just felt magical. Definitely take the time to walk some of it. You can get on and off at multiple places.
