“Worth the few Euros”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Great views when you get to the top but getting up there is half the fun! It gets tighter and tighter as you go up and coming down is quite the experience as well. When we were waiting to climb up the last few steps, we had to wait as a small group was trying to make their way down what looks more like a ladder. They were struggling quite a bit. Not recommended for people with balance issues! But the view once you make it is quite nice!

“wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

What a view from the top of the tower. It is a walk, that's for sure and it gets really narrow. But once you reach the top the view is breathtaking. It was worth the work and the time to climb to the top. All the red rooftops were so attractive and fun to see.

“Climb to the top for good views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We climbed to the top of the Rathaus after dark to take pictures but the lights of Christmas were not as visible as we thought they might be. Make the climb during daylight for the best views.

“a worthwhile experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

It cost a few euros, but visiting the top is a worthwhile experience. Certainly not one you will regret. If provides nice views and it is fun to climb so many stairs. Do it! I was there on a nice warm september day.

“One of the best things in Rothenburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Highly recommend this cheap yet fun excursion to the top of the tower. We took out 7 and 9 yesterday old boys but children younger than 7 may find the final portion of the climb difficult and / or scary. Also, probably not very appropriate for those that are obese (it's a TIGHT fit at the very top) or have difficulty with a ladder (also at the very top). Caveats aside, the view is incredible and not to be missed!
