The Ruckesser was built in the years 1385 to 1390 and was once a massive, rectangular wall tower of considerable size. Unfortunately, the tower was demolished to the height of the city wall - before you could dominate from here the Gebsattler- or Spitaltor and even more the Kobolzeller gate.
Because he also served as a powder store, he also got the name "sulfur tower". Because black powder contained in addition to the constituents potassium nitrate and charcoal just the smell-intensive sulfur.
