Road Cycling Highlight
The clock tower of Oppenheim in Rheinhessen in Rhineland-Palatinate is a built in 1843/44 in the style of Gothic Revival stone clock tower, which is about 31 meters high. The tower clock from 1907 indicates the half and full hours with a bell.
The Oppenheimer clock tower was built in 1843/44 on the remains of an earlier defense tower of the medieval city fortifications - the so-called toll tower or White Tower. Over the decades, the tower not only had the task of informing about the time of day. In the meantime, the tower also served as an observation point to warn of fires or floods, as a hose tower for the fire department and as an urban detention cell. The first built in the tower clock was replaced in 1907 by a new J. F. Weule in Bockenem in Ambergau, which still works. 🚴♂️routeyou.com/de-de/location/view/48842115/uhrturm?toptext=2526952
