“It was as good as I imagined”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The tar mask overhanging the gate, the man-door and the tall tower were all fantastic. It is at the end of Herrengasse, so it is easy to find. The views of the valley are great from outside of the Burg Tor.

“Rothenburg Is A Happy Confluence of Architecture and Gardens!”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

This picture gives a good idea of how architecture and landscape plantings have been developed to make the city a tourist destination. The gardens through this gateway also are on a fine vantage point for looking over the valley made by the Tauber.

“Join one of the hourly guided tours”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Its well advised to join one of the guided tours, which start at the marktplatz. The local guide is a bit of a celebrity who, has a great sense of humour, and makes a most enlightening, as well as enjoyable tour of this, and most other local points of importance.
