“Loved the Walls of Rothenburg”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Spent quite a bit of time on the walls walking and taking in the history of this medievel town. Also did the night watchman tour that is a must if you want be entertained and learn history at the same time. He share history form the 30 years war up to WWII and the present. With the walls and the tour, you are taken back in history. I highly recommend.

“Charming Medieval Walls”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We very much enjoyed walking on the city walls. But we found walking around the walls on the outside even better. There were some spectacular views of the city and its walls from the outside.

“Nice walk but not for tall people”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

The town wall is great, because you can see the city from totally different view. It really is worth climbing up those stairs up the wall. Unfortunately it's not very good for tall people maybe because the ceiling in most parts is quite low, so you have to bend if you wanna walk there.

“Great views of the town from these old walls.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We spent several hours walking around and viewing the old town - great to see it from a different perspective. There are also many plaques in the wall where people and companies have donated money to preserve this beautiful city.
