The Gerber Bastion, in Sorbian Garbarska bašta, is part of the historical fortifications in the old town of Bautzen. It secured the section between the Nicolai and Schülerturm on the north side of the city and protected the crossing of the Via Regia over the Spree and the paths into the city as well as the kennel behind the inner city wall. Today the "DJH Youth Hostel Bautzen" is located in the Gerberbastei see pictures :-)
