    The oldest surviving city gate of Brandenburg was begun around 1290 in front of the palisade on the field side as a gatehouse with drawbridge and added to the city side around 1310. Around 1320, two upper floors with coat of arms at the outer edges were completed. Entering the lower floor of the tower was only possible from the battlements over the floor of the first floor.Probably after 1355, perhaps as a punishment for the homage of the "Wrong Waldemar" - a scammer who claimed to be the late Margrave - the gate was locked, walled in as a dungeon, and above it a vaulted gun chamber was built. In 1911, the tower was broken for the footpath. In 1945, the Rathenow gate tower was hit by a gun. Finally, in 1996, the securing of the tower.The Rathenow gate tower, built as a shelter in the north of the old town, forms an irregular quadrangle. The 28 m high structure stands with a pointed conical roof as well as the Plauer Torturm laterally slightly in the road. Even today, the city wall on Walther-Rathenau-Platz reaches up to the Rathenow gate tower.
