"Roedertor" Röderturm - Town Gate Tip by dinhyen

  Brilliant rooftops of Rothenburg oT
by dinhyen

The covered wall are interrupted at intervals by tower-gates. The Roeder tower is the only one which could be climbed. This was the only structure I ascended.

I think the view here would be better than at the town tower or the cathedral, because 1) it's shorter so you don't "look down at your feet" as much, and 2) it's at the edge of town so the view towards the center and the cathedral would be more interesting.

Admission is 3 Euros paid at the top. Also at the top are a few photos showing damages done to the town during WWII.

Address: Rödergasse, Rothenburg-ob-der-Tauber
