Tauberbischofsheim is a German town in the north-east of Baden-Württemberg on the river Tauber with a population of about 12,700 (2013). It is the capital of the Main-Tauber district. Some relics of the medieval city wall, particularly a tower called Türmersturm can be viewed. For many years the town was home to the Tauberbischofsheim altarpiece, a monumental piece of German renaissance art by Master Mathis now kept in the Karlsruhe Kunsthalle. Tauberbischofsheim is famous for its fencers, who have won several Olympic medals and world championships.
