City wall, gates and towers

The kilometre-long, well-preserved city wall around the old town, which once upon a time had seven gates and 26 towers, is the largest monument in the city. It has always been a place around which stories and myths revolve. Nowadays, the city wall is of paramount architectural significance, most recently since Germany’s oldest covered battlements were discovered there. Its five city gates, six towers and three tower ruins hold some incredibly fascinating stories. The wall with its fortifications is the most extensive monument in the history of the city. Even today, the unusually monumental city wall has significant remains from the 14th and 15th centuries, and is thus the continual subject of building research.
