The bridge over the Tauber, known as the double bridge, was built in the 14th century. Shortly before the end of the war in 1945 it was nonsensically blown up and rebuilt in the 1950s. From the bridge you have a wonderful view of the higher town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.

The wow factor over the Tauber - from the double bridge the view of the old town is simply breathtaking and makes you want to immerse yourself in the city above the vineyards. The towers of St. Jakob and the town hall as well as the buildings of the Medieval Crime Museum are striking.
