I would not have expected that the town wall to be very interesting. However it turnout to be magic. The roofline that you are able to see was excellent. It adds to the charm of Rothenburg as a well kept medieval city. Took wonderful pictures when I was walking the town walls.

We really enjoyed walking on the Town Walls in Rothenburg. These are the first covered walls we have walked on, which was interesting in itself, as well as the great views both in the distance and of architectural details you would not see at street level. Be sure to watch where you are going - there are some areas it would be easy to fall down a stairway if you were not paying attention, but if you are looking ahead, it is not dangerous.

You can spend as much or as little time as you wish. We did a section and read some of the bricks which we had been told about on the Night Watchman tour otherwise we would not have known about them.

Walking the walls of Rothenburg you really get an understanding of their importance. There are openings for the weapons to fit through and even a couple of canons. The only down side is that the local teens seem to be using the wall as a party spot, leaving beer bottle and trash behind. If physically capable you should defiantly see this piece of history.

I walked around the city walls on two different days because I loved this attraction so much for its amazing scenic views of Rothenburg and the surrounding area. Get your cameras ready----you will see beautiful red rooftops, quaint gardens, churches, etc.!! There are various points around the wall at which you can go up or down (by stairs). There is no entrance fee at all. This attraction is great because you can easily have the option of coming down whenever you are tired, and you can go up again. Please note that the part where you go up can be a bit narrow so you may have to turn sideways to let other people walk by. One thing to note is that there are several washrooms near these walls so it is convenient for those with children etc. PLEASE PAY ATTENTION (for those who are tall) not to bump your head on the low ceiling of the wall in certain places. You can easily injure yourself if you don't pay attention to the low ceiling at certain spots. When walking along the wall, you can see various bricks with people's names and a year engraved on it. These indicate those who helped out Rothenburg financially during its difficult times. I recommend this city attraction for those of all ages, except for those who have an exceptionally hard time going up or down the stairs. I would also recommend walking around the city wall during different times of the day (e.g. sunset, sunrise) to appreciate the beauty of the town.
