Create an itinerary including Topplerschlosschen
Get an intimate tour of a small medieval castle in the Tauber valley at Topplerschlosschen, once both the summer residence and defensive tower for the powerful Lord Mayor Heinrich Toppler. Built in 1388, the small medieval castle now houses furniture from the 16th to 19th centuries. To enter, ring the bell outside the property to alert the owner. Walk up the steep stairs to see the sitting room, kitchen, bedroom, and library, and to learn more about the structure's history. Take a minute to notice the gardens outside, which could be flooded in case of attacks. Check the website for hours.

  • This little gem is a 15 minute walk down the south-western end of Rothenburg (towards Fuchsmuehle). It was not easy to find the start of the trail because there are no signs anywhere. Keep right...

  • Funny "castle", sort of like a treehouse castle. Its not a far walk from the castle gardens of Rothenberg. I don't think you can go in.
  • Beautiful hidden gem that I discovered while having a walk near Rothenburg. A woman offered me to go inside for 3€. This house feels magical, I can imagine a witch living there :D
