Medieval Tower

There are several medieval guard towers around the walled city. Good to see that they are maintained well, and definitely adds to the atmosphere

A great tower around a beautiful city. It's a tower with guard point in the top. Can see all the city. It's connected to the wall around the city. Good place to take some pictures.

This is so awesome, you can just see the guards at the top of the tower watching for the bad guys. They make the area so spectacular.

It was quite a chore climbing to the top of the tower and is not for anyone with any problems but it was worth it. The views were incredible. You could walk around the tower (very carefully, I might add) see Rothenburg in all it's glory. It was a great place to take some unique pictures of all that was... More

This tower is surrounded by beautiful buildings and foes make for a great photo but as already stated it is very busy and difficult to get a clear picture. We found a great time and that was on an early morning walk at 7.30am. There was hardly anyone out and about and we took many uninterrupted photos. We also found... More

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.
