Since I hadn’t prepared for a life of door blogging in 2013 my door shots were not planned and sometimes limited in scope. While in Rothenburg the other sights were interesting so I didn’t capture too many door photos and the village scenes were full of wandering tourists looking at the sights, shops and food.
So I’m just going to post a few more shots taken from the wall and a few random building shots to give you an idea of what this quaint city is like.
As I mentioned in last week’s post, the wall had a mezzanine level where the defensive positions could be taken by walking along the interior wall and looking at the city you get a bird’s-eye view. This bird was viewing me take its photo (can’t get any more bird’s-eye than that!).
Another rooftop view of the city with high-pitched red roofs and towers.
This photo may not qualify as a door; more like a window but it had hinges and a great weathered look.
Another shot of double weathered, wooden windows.
The next shot has a door, it looks like a garage door because the entrance is on the side.
This photo, I learned, was at a very popular tourist location because of the scenic image and if you look closely at the roof to the right of the tower in the background you will see that the rooftop windows look like eyes.
The last photo of this post is just a building with a mural on it; I must have thought it was cool then and I think it is still cool now to end this tour of Rothenburg. Hope you get a chance to visit this place in your travels.
