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 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.
