    The Topplerschlösschen is a small late medieval residential tower in the Taubertal near Rothenburg ob der Tauber. It was built by Rothenburg's mayor Heinrich Toppler in 1388 as a so-called pond house, a special form of the festival house, as a summer house. It consists of a stone substructure in the manner of a defensive tower and upper floors made of half-timbering. It is surrounded by a moat that was flooded by a spring. If necessary, the water could be drained into the Mühlbach via the Fuchsmühle. Small mansions of this type were common in the late Middle Ages, but are extremely rarely preserved.

    Residential towers were a fad of the Middle Ages. The Rothenburg mayor Toppler had his residence here

    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 partly as a fortified tower and partly as the residence of the Rothenburg mayor (d. 1408) Heinrich Toppler in 1388.

    A really strange but worth seeing cottage.

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