City wall of Rothenburg
"Pax intrantibus, salus exeuntibus" - " Peace to those who enter, hail those who leave, " so it is written at the Spitaltor (Spital Gate). A principle which still applies to the inhabitants and visitors of the city. Matters were handled especially peaceful behind the walls of the Spital quarter.

The imposing defense facilities at the Spital and Röder gate served to keep away uninvited guests and impressively conveyed in the age of nuclear weapons how well deterrence in the Middle Ages worked.
Out of all the mediaeval city-fortifications, here unfolds the most tremendous, self-contained and best-preserved cityscapes
