"Das Rödertor" by Ernst Geissendorfer

"Das Rödertor" is an original Pencil Drawing of the Röder Gate in Rothenburg ob der Tauber, by the twentieth century German artist Ernst Geissendorfer.

The drawing was made between 1950 & 1970, on stiffly woven paper with full margins. It is signed, titled and annotated by the artist -- "Original Radierung" (Original Drawing in Pencil).

Ernst Geissendorfer was born in Rothenburg and devoted much of his art to the enthusiastic illustration of many medieval buildings of his native City.

The Rödergate is part of the City Wall and it - as well as its associated constructions - date back to the thirteenth’ & fourteenth’ centuries.

Even today in the east of Rothenburg’s old city, you can walk through the town wall into the medieval alleyways via the Galgentor - also called Würzburger Tor or Rödertor. At the Rödertor is the Röderturm, which is open to visitors regularly.

From here you get a wonderful view of the old quarter, from Markusturm with its stork’s nest to – the also accessible – City Hall Tower.

The Röderturm is also a central starting point for Rothenburg’s Tower Trail, which leads around the old quarter. Many sections of the town wall in Rothenburg ob der Tauber are walkable around the clock.

The stroll on the town wall leads from Rödertor to the north, passing the Würzburger Tor and up to the Kummereck. From here you get to the city’s eastern section, passing Schrannenplatz.
