We walked the walls at dusk just after all the day trippers had left lots of nice views. We only passed a few other people while walking for over an hour on the walls.

THe moment you climb the stairs, you start going back to the 1600's. Its slightly creepy, especially at night, but you have a wonderful view of the countryside and can pretend you are putting your old gun through the tiny slits in the wall to defend the town. Good experience for kids especially. Also interesting to see the names on the walls of the people from around the world who gave money to the town to help rebuild it after the decimation of WWII.

Fun way to spend an evening in Rothenburg!

Expect a large group - probably every tourist in town!

Informative about the history of the town with a great sense of humor.

We walked the entire length of these walls and enjoyed every minute of it. We enjoyed seeing the names of the people memorialized in the plaques on the walls that have given money to preserve them. These walls are in such amazing shape its hard to believe they have been here for so long. If you have a couple of hours spend the time to do this.

Enjoy the view of Rothenburg from a different perspective. It was fun to walk the covered ramparts offering us the opportunity to see the city from a height. Great vistas.
