    If you enter the city center from the west, you pass the Kreuztor, which is considered a landmark of Ingolstadt. It is part of the second massive fortification ring and dates from the late 14th century. Six corner turrets and sparingly used limestone ornaments adorn the distinctive brick red gate tower. Its name is the Kreuztor from the former leper house to the Holy Cross, at whose driveway it is located. With the Kreuztor three more gates were built, of which only the Feldkirchner gate as part of the New Castle was preserved - at Hardertor and Donautor (in the north or south of the old town) remind the corresponding street

    The Kreuztor is something special for Ingolstadt. It is a jewel to protect!
    Especially at dusk, when the cross-gate is illuminated, it looks fantastic.

    Landmark of Ingolstadt, originally built in 1385 as part of the city wall and one of 4 main towers. Today only this city tower is still preserved in its form as a city gate.
