    One of the six city gates to Rothenburg's old town is the Klingentor. The Wolfgangskirche or Schäferkirche can be visited. Opening times:

    The mighty gate tower built between 1395 and 1400 was built together with the gatehouse and measures a stately 37 meters. Among other things, it served as a water tower until the 19th century and was the terminus of a "high-pressure line" installed in 1594, which led from the Bronnen mill in the Tauber valley high into the city.

    In 1587, the adjoining Klingen Bastei was completed as the northernmost gateway to the city and houses the fortified church of St. Wolfgang.

    The tower is part of the city wall. At a walk on the battlements you can almost completely circle the city.

    Rothenburg is always worth a visit. Here you get a vague idea of life in the Middle Ages.

    If you like historical buildings, Rothenburg is the place for you!
    Always worth a trip.
    However, you should bring your time. The city is actually too bad to hold out.
