June 1991, Nördlingen, Germany
Nördlingen is yet another town on the Romantic Road with all of its wall and watch-towers still in place. You can walk on top of almost all of the wall, which circles the town in almost a perfect ring. This town was used for many of the locations in the movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". At the end of the movie, you get a great view of the town from the air.

The “Romantic Road” (die Romantische Straße) is a tourist designation for the highways stretching from Würzburg in central Germany south towards Füssen. Along the way are a number of picturesque towns, castles, and churches, including some of the most popular sites in Germany. Several of the towns are still circled by walls.
Note that while Rothenburg ob der Tauber is part of the Romantic Road, it deserves an album page of its own: Rothenburg ob der tauber.
