Schwarzes Tor

Gate in Rottweil

The sturdy 13th-century Schwarzes Tor is the gateway to Hauptstrasse and the well-preserved Altstadt, a cluster of red-roofed, pastel-painted houses. The town gate is the starting point for the pre-Lenten Fasnacht celebrations.

Sidling up to it, the curvaceous Hübschen Winkel townhouse will make you look twice with its 45° kink.
