The mighty gate tower built between 1395 and 1400 was built together with the gatehouse and measures a stately 37 meters. Among other things, it served as a water tower until the 19th century and was the terminus of a "high-pressure line" installed in 1594, which led from the Bronnen mill in the Tauber valley high into the city.
In 1587, the adjoining Klingen Bastei was completed as the northernmost gateway to the city and houses the fortified church of St. Wolfgang.
