The Romantic Road Sights

Stadtmauer (City Wall)

  • Building/Architectural Site

Updated 11/18/2013

Fodor's Review

Rothenburg's city walls are more than 2 km (1 mile) long and provide an excellent way of circumnavigating the town from above. Let your imagination take you back 500 years as you explore the low, covered sentries' walkway, which are punctuated by cannons, turrets, and areas where the town guards met. Stairs every 200 or 300 yards provide ready access. There are superb views of the tangle of pointed and tiled red roofs and of the rolling country beyond.
