We had entered the town through the Roderturm to get to our hotel at the Gasthof Zum Breiterle, which was basically right next to the tower. In the afternoon, my family and I climbed the stairs next to the tower to walk half the length...More

One of the city portals. Once in the old town, you can easily find this one and other portal, just by walking around. Nice architecture to photograph

The Der Roderturm was my first view of the city, and was a great view. My Hotel was near and it was near the Hauptbahnhof.
