This tower at the gateway to a previously walled city is off the beaten path and therefore not at all crowded, even in peak season. It is under renovation but it is still an ornate building with a fantastic view from the top.

The defense gate at the East exit of the old city was finished 1425. Elaborately decorated it shows off the wealth of Landsberg at those times at the "salt road". Renovation was just finished and it is again in prime condition.

Just a short walk from the city center you can see this historic gate. It had better days and I hope it will be renovated soon for the next generation.

In 1425 was built this beautiful gate and tower. I think the town should renovate it, as today you can't see anymore the original paintings.

The city is full of history and architecture. The colors and splendor of the tor are fading. It is a pity that the sites on the tourist maps look so nice in comparison to the actual conditions of the markers. Beautiful city anyhow.
