Red Tower

Roter Turm

From the “Ochsenfurter Tor”, a path between the wall of the castle garden and the town wall leads to the ruin of the “Kalkturm” (‘Lime Tower’) and further on to the “Bürgerturm”, (‘Citizens’ Tower’), which is also called “Roter Turm” (‘Red Tower’) because of its red roofing tiles. It once served as a jail for the execution of the punishments inflicted by the mayor and the council.
