Tips

    The Topplerschlösschen is a tower-like medieval residential building in which the mayor of Rothenburg, Toppler, once lived. The castle has been completely preserved and is now privately owned.

    A tour of the building is possible on request. Admission costs 1.50 euros. More information on how to contact the owners is available from the Rothenburg tourist information office.

    The Topplerschlösschen was the retreat of the great Rothenburg mayor Heinrich Toppler, who directed the fortunes of Rothenburg at the end of the 14th century. Due to his excellent relationships in the highest circles of imperial politics, he was able to achieve great advantages for Rothenburg. He had a particularly close relationship with the Roman-German King Wenzel, whom he is said to have lodged here several times in the Topplerschlösschen.

    The castle was built in 1388 partly as a defense tower and partly as a residence for the mayor of Rothenburg (died 1408) Heinrich Toppler. He was one of the best-known and most powerful mayors in the history of Rothenburg. Today there is an exhibition there. It provides impressions of the lifestyle of the Middle Ages.

    Residential towers were a fad of the Middle Ages. The Rothenburg mayor Toppler had his residence here museen-in-hohenlohe-franken.de/Museen/Museen/RothenToppler.html

    The little house seems to balance on a defense tower. After its construction in 1388, it served two purposes: on the one hand, it was Rothenburg's defense tower and, on the other hand, it was a residential building for the mayor Heinrich Toppler. Today it is furnished with historical furniture from the 16th to 19th centuries.
    Guided tour for a fee of 3 euros.

    A really strange but worth seeing cottage.

    It's over quickly. If you go downriver it comes shortly after the alpacas.

    Those must have been unusual times when the mayors needed small defense towers. 😜
