Germany At the Kobolzeller Tower

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
You will find two beautiful views on Rothenburg up here: one in the direction of the setting sun with the western part of the old town and the Castle Tower on the left, and one following the northern direction of the “Hirschweg”, showing not only the towers of the St. James and the St. Johannis Church, but the one of the town hall as well.
Although the horizontal image looks quite different, I didn't have to change my viewpoint. All I had to do was remove the telephoto lens, attach my standard 24-70, mount the camera vertically and pan to the right.

Photography Tips

For the panoramic shot I used my telephoto lens (70-200) @100mm.
For the other two images I had to switch to my 24-70 lens @ around 50mm.

Travel Information

There are five main parking areas (P1-P5) around the city walls, providing space for roughly 1,000 vehicles and quick access to the old town. In my opinion the fee of € 5,50 for a day ticket is quite reasonable.
If you follow the “Untere Schmiedegasse” to the south and turn right into the “Kobolzeller Steige” at the “Plönlein”, you will find the stairs leading up to the Kobolzeller Tower on the left after a short walk. Once at the top go straight on with the tower on the right, then turn right after a couple of meters.
