The walls are accessible from several points and you get a different perspective and see more of the 'real life' residents of Rothenburg than you do from the more touristy street fronts. It is also interesting to see all the plaques along the wall recognizing the contributions from all over the world to first reconstruct the walls after damages incurred... More

Climb the stairs and explorer it on the go! Free of charges. Get out of it and explorer the surroundings as you face it.

Our host recommended that we "Walk the Wall" during our visit to Rothenburg. We are glad we followed his advice as this allowed us to get a different perspective of this charming city. The stairs up and down can be a bit tricky but there are lots of places to enter/exit so you can walk as much or little as... More

The walls were by far our favorite thing about Rothenburg. Much of the city's old wall is still intact and can be walked along. It's narrow and you have to watch your step, but my teenagers thought it was awesome to walk along so much of the wall and gates, and the views all around the city were amazing. Since... More

My daughter and I walked the town walls when we first got here. Thank goodness we did because not one tour bothers to include them in their talks. I found them to be easy to access, both on and off, enjoyable to walk on, safe, and provides one the perfect places to see both the inside and outside of old... More

One of the best preserved walls and you can even climb it and walk around on sections. A must when you go there

I was still adjusting to jet lag and woke up very early on my first day in town. I'm so glad, because I decided to take a walk on the Town Walls. I didn't see another soul, so it was really fun having the walls and the quiet of the new day all to myself. Rothenburg can be overrun during... More

We walked a section of the town wall. Loved the view of the town from the wall. Our youngest was 7yrs. Stairs to and from can be steep and uneven.

I've been on my share of town walls, and these are some of the most memorable. The fact that they are covered is really unique, and they almost go around the whole city. I can see a problem though if they get crowded....fortunately we almost had the whole wall to ourselves - it was wonderful!
