In the eastern part of the old town stands a Middle Age old city wall tower. Local shops and business surround the area. Nice clock marks the tower with iconic art murals.

This tor is one of the icons of Freiburg. At many of the Christmas markets, you will find miniature versions of the tor as this is one of their iconic sites. Lovely to see this 13th century gem untouched by the war.
