Notes on the Geography of Germany: Rothenberg ob der Tauber: Photo 5
It was an about face from the early 19th century, when the city had decreed that "outer walls, embankments, ditches, and walls as well as the towers shall be sold as sections and the new owners shall be permitted to level these out to beautify the town" (2006, p. 23). As late as the 1920s the town permitted Shell and Esso gas stations within the old-town walls. No longer, of course. The picture here shows the Christmas Market, first opened in the 1930s.
