    The late-Gothic fortified church of St. Wolfgang was integrated directly into the fortifications of the Blade Bastei and has, in addition to underground battlements, further defensive mechanisms. The church was built from 1475 to 1493, a high altar was in 1514.- - -

    From the outside weird strong from the inside late Gothic delicate - so presents the unique fortified church of St. Wolfgang. It is integrated with the Klingentor in the fortifications of the city wall, defiant and equipped with loopholes. In the nave, however, captivates artful, late Gothic tracery next to three altars from the period around 1500. Around this time also St. Wolfgang himself was born, right at the point where for years the shepherds at St. Wolfgang sought protection for their herds.
     
    Did you know that sheep and wool trade in medieval Rothenburg had great importance? The gatehouse of the church houses the shepherd dance museum, here you will find interesting exhibits around the sheep farm.
