Rothenburg’s old quarter has no less than 42 towers. Most are along the city wall, at the six gates into the city and along the fortifications. Inside the old quarter, you can find the towers of the first city wall, the City Hall tower and the towers of St. James. Many sections of the Tower Trail lead along the top of the city wall while a small part also leads around it. In about 2.5 hours, you can find out everything about the city’s defense system during a stroll along the four-kilometer Tower Trail.
