Day Trip to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Germany

I had again another visit with friends to Rothenburg ob der Tauber. This is already my third visit to this beautiful town of Bavaria. Actually, it is located in the district of Ansbach of Mittelfranken (Middle Franconia), the Franconia region of Bavaria in Germany. It is very well known for its well preserved medieval old town. It was also partly destroyed during the second world war but it was slowly built again.

I will more images and travel experience in my Explore Germany site. I am quite tired now after that day trip today. I am also happy that I had again a wonderful day with friends.

one of the tower gates in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. I am trying to count now how many tower gates does this town have. I even forgot the name of this tower.

the view of the town from the Röderturm or Roeder Tower. I finally had a chance to climb this very high tower during our visit today.

Hi Ruby---This is Art again. This one was a bit of a challenge to figure out since it is not photographed as much as some of the more impressive looking towers in Rothenburg. This is the Spitaltor or Spital Gate, a watch tower rising above the Spitalbastei, or Spital Bastion, at the southern end of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. The Spital Bastion was built in 1586 and had two inner courtyards and an adjacent moat. The inner courtyards are filled with trees and make a very beautiful and peaceful place to visit. Rothenburg is one of my favorite places. I visit it every time I come to Germany. Keep up the good work with all of the great travel pictures....Art
