The Spier Fortress was built in the 17th century and is now the gate to Rothenburg. It is now a very quiet place, but it may have been a life-and-death battlefield. The spire building is also a public toilet. The top is for men and the bottom is for women and babies. Yes, this design reflects the love of the designer. There is a parking lot on the right side of the gate, free parking on weekends
Spier Fortress is the intersection of the ancient city of Rothenburg, connecting the city gate and the city wall. Although not as majestic as other ancient fortresses in Europe, it has a sense of historical vicissitudes and feels integrated with the ancient city of Rothenburg, very harmonious and full of European medieval characteristics.
This historic Spier Fortress is located at the southern end of Rothenburg City. We ran into it by accidentally walking around the city wall in the morning. Tourists rarely come here. It was built in the 17th century. It is a strong fortification from the outside, and the trench (similar to a moat) outside the fortress is still well preserved.
