Bike Touring Highlight
The Johannistor is the only largely preserved city gate in Jena, Thuringia. As part of the old city wall, it is connected to the powder tower via a reconstructed battlement. Only at the beginning of the 19th century, as a result of the increasing traffic load, the outer entrance gate was removed. The western gate tower was first mentioned in a document in 1304. In the 15th century, it was converted according to a late Gothic model and an oriel was added. The tower has a square floor plan with an edge length of 7.72 mx 7.85 m. The total height is 31.70 m.
