The overlook is nice on a clear day with no crowd so you can take advantage of the view. A crowded day with lousy weather....the tower was a mistake. I didn't take a single photo.

This is the clock tower to the left when you view from Plonlein. Going past this tower will lead you to the Spital Bastion.

Great view. Definitely worth the climb to the top. They do charge a small admission when you reach the top but it's worth it to get away from the crowds and see the city from up above. The view from the tower at the town hall is better so if you're only going to do one I would recommend that... More

Probably the tower, in general, is most noteworty for the beautiful Middle Ages building next to it. It is located on Spittalgasse (hospital lane) and the popular view is looking at the tower from hospital lane.

Loved this. We walked all around the wall after dinner and it was so romantic. Quiet, not overwhelming at all. The history here is amazing.

Just something else to see in Rothenburg - A World Heritage site. Be sure to see the Christmas Store off the main Square. Lots to see here. I am American but it is my ancestor's home. An Arch was named after my Family.

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.
