old part of Nordlingen, Germany is a medieval city
completely surrounded by a stone wall.
The wall has slits every few feet for the defenders of the city to shoot arrows and crossbows
at any attackers. In later years they could shoot muskets. During the 30 Years War (1619-1649)
Nordlingen was not taken by force.The city paid a ransom to be left alone.Included is a diagram of the
old part of the city surrounded by the wall. I took photos of many houses. I was particularly
interested in the houses balconys and rooftop open areas. The towers were the location of the
gates into the city through the wall. The moat around the city wall is now dry and is used for gardens
and playground areas. The helmets shown are actually from the Crusade era (1200s and 1300s).
