a must visit when in Rothenburg. The wall exhudes history as you walk around it. You can picture how it was back in the middle ages as the citizens prepared to defend the city.

We did the usual "walk on the walls" tourist thing and enjoyed it. However, there is a tower tour you can walk on your own which describes the construction of the walls and each tower throughout the course of history. It's not always the easiest path to find. Sometimes it is inside but most often, it is outside of the walls. It is always on a path within 15-20 yds of the wall in either case. There are numbered signs along the way. Probably the easiest thing to do is to go to the tourist information office in the city center and ask for the walk's brochure.

This is a great way to get a view of the city and medieval scale. Follow the city walls ...for at least 2/3 rds of the distance you can walk the ramparts. These provide an excellent perspective of the town, with wide vistas across Rothenberg and the surrounding hills.

An excellent introduction to the city and very with doing

Loved walking the city walls of Rothenburg.

It is a free attraction, giving you wonderful views over the town, and back yards. Lots of places to take photos.

There are plaques along the way, showing peoples names that helped Rothenburg in its restoration.

We walked around the city wall early one morning - beautiful light for photographs and very few people. you can walk on the walls for most of the way - there is a small section where you walk in the streets or path. The walls are very impressive and well maintained - it was a lovely way to see the town and the views are excellent.
