Topplerschlösschen

Posted by Fredericus-Rex on 17 Nov 2020, 10:05

The Topplerschlösschen is a small late medieval residential tower in the Taubertal near Rothenburg ob der Tauber. It was built by Rothenburg's mayor Heinrich Toppler in 1388 as a so-called pond house, a special form of the festival house, as a summer house. It consists of a stone substructure in the manner of a defensive tower and upper floors made of half-timbering. It is surrounded by a moat that was flooded by a spring. If necessary, the water could be drained into the Mühlbach via the Fuchsmühle. Small mansions of this type were common in the late Middle Ages, but are extremely rarely preserved.

Very interesting. Looks like a setting in a fantasy movie. Never heard of it before.
