This is the one tower one is able to access to the top. A small museum is contained inside with panoramas of the historic siege of the city in the 1600's, an old brass spire, helmets, and more.

As many of the major attractions of Nordlingen were closed between Christmas day and new year's day, we walked the wall. The museum at the gate was also closed when we visited. We took a leisurely hour to walk the wall. Took many photos. Interesting...More
