Attraction details
Reviewed September 30, 2010

Mark's Tower, with its distinctive hipped roof, is amongst Rothenburgs oldest wall ring from 12. Century. It was part of the first town fortress. The tower is 22 metres high and its wall thickness up to two metres is very powerful. Next to the White Tower, you will find the medieval Jewish Dance Hall. The small adjacent garden has ancient Jewish gravestones built into the stone wall. The tower and Büttelhaus (Beadle House) were used as a prison until the year 1844. The Büttelhaus now functions as the Rothenburg city archive.
