The Spitaltorturm was designed by Leonhard Weidmann, completed within 10 years of construction (1370 - 1380) and rebuilt in 1631 after a devastating fire. The bulwark in the form of an eight is the youngest and at the same time most massive structure of the city fortification.Inside you can admire the mighty guns of the defensive system, which were set up along the navigable wall.On the opposite side of the tower is the Spitaltor - one of the city gates of Rothenburg.
