The town walls were a lovely place to take a stroll and get different perspectives of the town. We ended up walking all of the walls, over a few different days.

Take the time to walk the wall. It is a great experience and you feel as if you've stepped back in time. It took me about 2 hours and I did walk into town once for hot chocolate & a pastry.

Loved visiting Rothenburg. We arrived late at night, when everything was closed and the streets were empty, and felt as though we were on the set of Harry Potter movie. The building we stayed in was right next to the town wall, so parking was quite an adventure, but only added to our experience. I have visited other medieval walled... More

Looking for a fun run? We jogged the wall, and it was a blast! Watch your head if you're tall, but it's just something fun! Or, you can walk. Stairs are a little steep. Rothenburg is one of the most well preserved old cities, so enjoy!

A must for every traveller. Climb the walls and imagine yourself back all those decades ago, gorgeous scenery and lots of photo opportunities.

Walking around the town on its wall is certainly an experience not to be missed. Great view to the inside and outside of the city walls are the reward of this little walk. Its worthwhile taking a town map so you can hop off nearer other sites you have earmarked.

It may be easy to allow the historic town walls of Rothenburg ob der Tauber to stand as an omnipresent part of the magnificent scenery, but don't let that happen! The walls and the towers should be as much a part of your visits as the streets, the shops, and the museums you find inside. You can climb the stairs... More

It was relaxing walking around the old town wall of Rothenberg. It was neat to be able to see the watchtowers, and really gain a different perspective.

Gives a bird's eye view of the old town. Watch the children - some of the walkway is uneven with low guard rails!

Imagine you are a warrior prepared to defend the city. what a great vantage point you have! How can an enemy attack? But attack they did. Check out the Rathaus and learn about the Meistertrunk (big drink of wine). The burgermeister, legend has it, saved the City!
