The Neustädter Mühlentorturm is 28.85 m high, is one of the formerly eight towers of the city wall. The tower was built in 1411 within a year. The name Neustädter refers to the New Old Town, as the old town also had a mill tower, but was demolished in 1805.

The Neustadtische Mühlentorturm is a gate tower of the Neustädter city wall in Brandenburg an der Havel. It is one of the formerly at least 8 gate towers (still four remaining) of the former two cities of Brandenburg and is part of the medieval fortifications that once had ten gates.

Through a panel on Mühlentorturm the year of construction 1411 is handed down. As a master builder, the Stettiner Nikolaus is called Kraft. In addition to the outer octagonal shape of the brick building, including the helmet cone, the 24-meter-high four-storey structure differs noticeably from the other gate towers due to the stained glass windows. As with almost all other gate towers, the lower part of the tower served as a prison. Access was in the Middle Ages from the bastion over the upper floor in the interior of the tower. By the Mühlentor located to the right of the tower led until 1804 the trade route to Berlin.
