This tower is in most of the pictures you see of Rothenburg and it the most photographed spot in this beautiful town. It is a busy area because of it's popularity and difficult to get a picture without lots of people in it. We purchased a colored sketch drawing of this spot in one of the nearby shops.

This tower is not in and off itself so special but part of the package when you walk the old medieval walls. It is neat to see preserved tower gates.

Siebers Tower (circa 1385) served as an entrance to Rothenburg for about 150 years, until the building of the Spital Bastion in the sixteenth century. Walking in through the archway, the visitor arrives at the picturesque Plönlein Triangular Place. Fishermen once stored their fish in the cages next to the fountain.
