On a tour through the historic old town of Rottenburg am Neckar, you can feel the long history of the city almost at every corner. The townscape is characterized by small alleys and large squares as well as impressive buildings from eight different centuries. From medieval towers and gates from the 13th century to gothic churches and baroque chapels that tell of the time when the city became the episcopal seat of the diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart. Traces of the Roman past can also be discovered, for example, in the Sumelocenna Roman Town Museum. Until the 17th century, wine growing was widespread in Rottenburg a.N., before later mainly hops were cultivated.
