This was an experience for sure! The stairs are very steep and some are newer stairs, but there are some areas that have older stone steps that can be a bit uneven. Just something to keep in mind if you have mobility issues. The views...More

Good to see how the walls have been preserved and still provide access points to the popular tourist town.

Enjoyed walking the wall all they around the city. You get great views both inside and of the surrounding area outside the wall.

With roughly 2.5 miles of Medieval ramparts and 70 towers surrounding Rothenburg, a stroll on top of the 20 foot tall wall is one of the joys of any visit. Working your way up the steps and into the covered walkway on top of the...More

Avoid middle of the day! Tourists multiply like mice. The truth is spending a night allows you to soak in the town with a lot less stress. We liked the evening hours and early morning hours- at 10:00am you are wanting to hide!

Being one of the old walled town of Germany, a walk on the walls is a must. Very nice views onto as well as from the walls.

20 foot thick walls, it doesn't take much imagination to picture what medieval life was like....the surroundings and ancient buildings just take you there in a flash. Wonderful people and the food is 'music to your mouth'. I especially loved the pastries and the German...More

An excellent way to see the city . The building's skyline is very engaging . You must walk through the gate house complex at the end of Obere Schmiedgasse. One of the towers, (at Rodergasse) where the wall was restored after WW2 has a brief...More

You must walk along at least one section of the walls to get a feeling of the scale of the build and how low the covered walkways are. Peer through the openings so that they could fire back and get an overview of the town.

A lot of the stones and brick have names on them of people who donated to the restoration. In the snow do watch your step (everywhere) but you will have a magical view in the snow. Enjoy!

There are many places to get up onto the wall. I would recommend simply walking along the wall until you reach a staircase. There are plenty of these access points along the way.
