Places of interest

Rothenburg Spitaltor Gate, copyright Rothenburg Tourismus Service
The town walls with their battlements and mighty bastions form a protective circle around the precious relics of bygone ages. The Spitalbastei at the southern gate is particularly impressive. Its towers are not the only outstanding feature of St. James's Church; the interior is equally impressive, with three altars by Tilman Riemenschneider, the renowned woodcarver.
Spitalbastei Gate
Leonhard Weidmann created this double bulwark in the town's fortified walls in a figure of eight shape with seven towers, a portcullis and a drawbridge. The keystone on the outer arch bears the date 1586, Weidmann's initials and a Latin inscription which reads "Peace to those who enter, health to those who leave".
Gothic St. James's church
Rothenburg's foremost ecclesiastic building contains the famous Altar of the Holy Blood by Tilman Riemenschneider and the Twelve Apostles Altar by Friedrich Herlin. The window in the east chancel is also notable.
Plönlein square
A small triangular open space at a fork in the road near the Kobolzell Gate in Rothenburg's picturesque town centre is the town's most famous landmark and one of its prettiest and most photographed spots.
