Does anyone have any information about Topplerschlosschen in Rothenburg? What little I found it is apparently down a trail from the Castle Garden. How far is the walk and is it worth it?
I think what you are referring to is in Detwang (the town below Rothenburg). "Topplerschlößchen" which is "Toppler's Little Castle," is a small, white, square house on a smaller base that belonged to Mayor Heinrich Toppler as a summer residence. There is a road/path that leads from the town to the town. It is not particularly strenuous, however the entire trek is about 4 km as I recall. For me, the walk is well worth it because the church there contains more work by the great master woodcarver Tilman Riemenschneider. There are well preserved grist mills in the area as well plus another church and a few other spots. If you are staying overnight in Rothenburg, then the time will be well spent. If not, the walk is about an hour and if you are only spending a few hours in the city, I don't think it would be worth it. Good luck.
