You will find a beautiful view of the “Röderbogen” and the 27 meter-tall Markus Tower at the corner of “Rödergasse”/”Paradeisgasse”. The tower, built around 1200, was used as a prison until 1844, and you can still find remains of the old pillory at the tower’s south side. The “Röderbogen”, an elevated extension of the wall-walk and presumably part of a former, mightier gate and building with portcullis and a drawbridge, was erected around 1560.

Travel Information

There are five main parking areas (P1-P5) around the city walls, providing space for roughly 1,000 vehicles and quick access to the old town. In my opinion the fee of € 5,50 for a day ticket is quite reasonable.
Crowd Factor A decent amount of people
