Not only is this tower picturesque, it also provides easy access to the city outside the walls. It is both accessible and a worthy stop in its own right.

One of a number of Town wall gates to this delightful town. All of them are interesting to see. The whole town is a picturesque must see.

We entered Rothenburg through the gate on Galgengasse and had a delightful introduction to the city as we strolled along past the picturesque buildings on our way to Marktplatz.

Galgengasse Translates to "Gallows Alley. Not sure how that ties into one of the towers but given medieval judicial practices, I can picture bodies hanging from the tower as a warning to villans. No bodies hanging now...just a pretty adjunct to the city walls

This is the street leading from one of the entrance into Rothenburg, especially if you came from the direction of the train station. The best view is afforded by climbing onto the tower and look down the street towards the town. Take a walk along...More

An impressive entrance to a walled city. Worth stopping to observe its architecture and to climb up to walk the wall
