This Gate and tower are extra ordinary in Rothenburg, they differ from others, as here they are part of the fortified church St. Wolfgang's, making church outside fortified, inside spiritual. This combination gives to Klingentor unique and different construction and look. Looking from different directions...More

This is a great part of the wall around the city of Rothenburg . It is great to use as a vantage point as well as looking up.This is a special attraction about the old town.

It is the furthest away gate if you are walking from South, but also the most beautiful. As well as with the others, you cam climb the stairs up, walk along the walls, and enjoy the view.

This is but one of many towers along the medieval wall, but it is the most interesting. It would be even more so if we could have gone to the top.

Klingentor is one of many towers along the town wall of Rothenburg. Next to this tower there is a stair where you can climb to the town wall and take a walk to explore the town.

Although it is located in northernmost uncrowded part of the walled city, I think this tower is the most beautiful one among a dozen or more towers along the city wall with the pretty turrets on both sides and subtle roof curves. However, the tower...More

The Tower/gate/wall at the north end of the old town is a beautiful historic monument that is worth a visit. Near a large parking lot on the north end and you can climb it making it a great stop on your tour of Rothenburg.

It is quite interesting how low the walks are on the walls. you forget that each generation is getting taller and taller! Worth a short stroll along a section of walls from one gate to another to get the feel of the way they were...More
