It is worth a quick visit but the museum is all in German so missed out. Opted for a quick walk up to the top, but it's not that impressive. Lovely for photo opts on the outside.

Situated in the picturesque area of the old town which is perched in an elevated position above the surrounding area, the Martinsturm chapel features medieval frescoes, whilst the tower contains a military museum (not visited). To get to the chapel requires a walk up a steep hill and through a medieval gatehouse. Once through the gatehouse you are in a... More

the tower of St. Martin is located in the old city of Bregenz. it can be reached by walk in 10 minutes from the main place Leutbuehl much easier than going by car. in the tower you get an impression how Bregenz looks like in the medieval times.

The tower contains a small museum about the town history and offers nice views toward the town. Nothing exceptional.

Really worth a visit. Walking distance from the harbor or the city center. Once you get there, you feel like in another world. Martinsturm is in a quiet neighborhood and close to a beautiful chapel. Close by is a statue for the fallen 1st world war soldiers. Also in the close-by churchyard I was surprised to find a small cemetery... More

The view from the tower is very pleasant. The items displayed may interest some. But the best thing about visiting the tower is the most enjoyable walk up from the old town. Having visited the tower just keep walking away from town to one of the seats along the path offering a splendid view over Bregenz and the lake.

In a small town like Bregenz with not much to do/see (except for enjoying the wonderful great space along and in view of Bodensee/Lake Constance, as well as food from many restaurants), this monument provides with a nice thing to do and see. Really nice short walk and peaceful neighborhood feeling like we stepped back in time.
