The Best of Rothenburg
This 30-minute tour features a sample of the city’s most famous spots. You’ll see three gate towers, a part of the historic city wall and one of the most beautiful half-timbered houses in Rothenburg: the Gerlachschmiede. The Franciscan Church—the city’s oldest—is also along the way, plus one of the most charming squares you’ll ever see: The Plönlein.
All of Rothenburg
This exclusive 60-minute tour will not only show you the very best of Rothenburg’s renowned sights, but also many more of its architectural highlights, including six gate towers, five churches and an extensive stretch of the fortified wall.
Special Tours (60 min.)
‚Spiritual Life‘: You’ll visit Rothenburg’s Franciscan Church, which dates back 700 years, and admire the impressive Gothic architecture of St. Jacob’s Church. The tour also comprises the Hospice of the Holy Spirit, the former Dominican convent and its cloister, plus St. Wolfgang’s Church, also known as Shepherd’s Church.
‚Superstitious World‘: References to superstition from the city’s medieval past are still visible today. Turn a corner and find grimacing faces on wells or mythical figures in fountains. Spot skulls on the Death Gate, branks on towers or even a devil’s face in a church wall. The Executioner’s Tower is also included on this tour.
‚Children’s Adventure‘: Kids will have fun discovering and learning about Rothenburg’s underground casemates, its strongest bulwark with cannons and the former latrine seats in the fortified wall. The tour wouldn’t be complete without seeing the pillory at the Medieval Crime Museum and the wooden cage for the so-called ‚baker’s baptism‘.
