To protect the city during medieval times a wall was built around the village of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Today visitors can walk 2.5 km loop on the wall around the city.
Several towers served as watch points as well as entry points to the city.
During medieval times the city had a curfew. Anyone coming home late had to pay a hefty fine and could enter through the man hole in the large door, or spend the night outdoors. This is an original door from the middle ages.
