“Intact walls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2014

There are a number of towers and bastions on the intact walls of Nordlingen. It is lovely to walk the length of the walls always admiring the church of St Georg right in the centre. There is a cafe with a little terrace and a museum to entertain one on the way around.

“Wonderful way to explore the town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Rally enjoyed a leisurely walk around the entire wall of the city, from the covered walkway on top of the wall. Picturesque and provided a great historical perspective of what it would be like in the medieval times with in the city.

“Pleasant, easy one hour tour of the city from the wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

As many of the major attractions of Nordlingen were closed between Christmas day and new year's day, we walked the wall. The museum at the gate was also closed when we visited. We took a leisurely hour to walk the wall. Took many photos. Interesting sections of wall and views.
Very easy walk, most of it under cover.

“Count the piggies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

The town walls in Nordlingen are well worth walking. These, walls which circle the town are intact and you can walk them all the way around. It is a great way to view this town. The litle museum at te gatehouse was closed when we were there just before Xmas.
The pig is a lucky symbol here so see how many different pig statues you can spot in private homes. There are quite a few!

“Would be better if in other languages as well.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Would have liked to have been able to read about the displays. I understand that not all museums can cater for all languages but at 2 EUR only, we still enjoyed the views from the highest level.
