Kappenturm (cap tower)

The “Kappenturm” can be found in the south-western corner of the former frontal wall. A passed on narration says that during the Thirty Year´s War the gate guardian lost the iron bolt. As the Croatians were standing in front of the gates, he used a cabbage stalk as replacement.

Next to “Kappenturm” and built into the former town wall in the year 1574 you can find a quite impressive building with yellow painted frame work. That was probably the domicile of the bailiff who was responsible to the citizen and to the rulers of the town, so had a quite difficult position between these two parties. He also presided over the court.
