Virtual Tour of Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Kobolzeller tower

If you go down the hill on the street to your right, as you face the Siebers Tower, you will come to the gate through the Kobolzeller Tower, shown in the photo above.

You will then enter the Kobolzeller Bastion, shown in the photo below. Note the coat of arms with a black eagle, which was the symbol of the free city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
