Virtual Tour of Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Siebers tower on the left, Kobolzeller tower on the right

The Plönlein (Little Square) is one of the most photographed spots in the world. It is located at the southern end of Schmiedgasse (Smithy Lane). Note the large wooden box to the left of the parked car in the center of the photo. This is where the fishermen kept their catch until market day.

On the left in the photo above, you can see the Siebers Tower which dates back to 1385 and is part of the second fortifications that were built when the city was expanded.

On the right is the road to the Tauber valley through the Kobolzeller Gate which was built around 1360. If you walk down the street on the right and pass through the Kobolzeller Gate, you will see the steep road down to the Tauber Valley and the famous Double Bridge.
