We visited Rothenburg today in this beautiful fall weather. It was granted a town charter in 1172 but its heyday was in the 14th century. It was oh-so-very German with all of the iron work and half-timbered buildings.
This is the Siebers tower on the left and the tower of Kobolzell Gate on the right.
We went into St. Jacob’s Church and it was beautiful! The gothic style church was started in 1311 and took 150 years to complete.
This is the Holy Blood Alter that was created in 1499 by Erhard Harschner and sculptor Tilman Riemenschneider. Tradition says that three drops of Jesus’s blood is contained in the gold cross in the middle (c 1270).
An old well and Austin’s really cool sword we got at a Spielzeugladen.
We walked the medieval wall that surrounds the town.
