Dotting the horizon are windmills. Big ones with gigantic blades. Sometimes a single one, sometimes a cluster of 6 or more. These are modern windmills used to generate electricity. Their simple clean lines don't even really detract from the countryside.
Our first stop is Rothenburg, a town that still looks much as it did in medieval days. We parked right next to a wall the encloses the town (I believe it is called a "rampart").
This church, St. Wolfgangskirche, was built in 1475. It even had a set of dungeons and catacombs.
