    The city tower in Straubing was built as a watchtower and fire tower. Atypical for a watchtower is its location in the middle of the city, regardless of the city fortifications. It is located in the middle of the town square, a 600 meter long street market, and divides it into Ludwigsplatz and Theresienplatz.

    One of the reasons for its location is that the Danube had to be monitored from the tower, as customs duties were levied on the passing ships. On the other hand, it served as a fire tower and thus offered a good overview of the entire medieval city from the central and highest point. The bell in the city tower, which also served as a fire bell in the Middle Ages, was cast by Hanns Paier in Regensburg in 1406. This also bears an inscription, it reads: "I tell you the time that God gives us day and night". It is one of the oldest bells in Germany.

    The 68 m high, eight-storey fire and watchtower was founded in 1316 and expanded with a tower house and five spikes until the 16th century.
    He is the landmark of Straubing.
