Many old items and some replicas on display. A good place to get a quick orientation to the history of Rothenburg and to see how people lived centuries ago. The dungeon and cells were eye-opening. Not a bad place to go for 30-45 minute visit.

Lots of beautiful views at the top but a steep tight climb to get there. Totally worth it if you have the strength.

This is a must visit historical town. The building and view is breathtaking. The design is wonderful. There is a Christmas village where they sells lots of beautiful gifts.

Not sure the Rothenburg fascination with crimes and jails. Hard to find entrance tucked behind the Rathaus.
