May 3, 2013 – Nordlingen – Bavaria, Germany

We continued north to Nördlingen which was first mentioned in recorded history in 898.  It is one of only three towns in Germany that still has a completely established city wall.  Alas, we did not have time to take the walk around the walls, but the 1st and 5th picture show a gate and part of the wall.   The history in this city was amazing.  The town hall dates to the 13th century and there is also a former medieval hospital.  The last two pictures show Nordlingen’s May Tree, which Leslie dubbed as the cutest of the ones we saw because it had a miniature version of the city’s walls at the bottom.
