    The bulwark tower goes back to the Hohenstaufen city fortifications of Heilbronn. The tower, located on the northwest corner of the city walls, was formerly also called the Witches Tower. In 1519 Götz von Berlichingen was imprisoned in this tower for one night.

    The tower's current shape and its battlements were not given until the renovation in 1884. Originally, the tower was as close to the Neckar as the Götzenturm is still today. After the air raid on Heilbronn in 1944, the Neckar arm of the river next to the bulwark tower was filled with a huge amount of rubble and it was later built over, so that the original topography around the tower can no longer be guessed today. The current design of the square around the Bollwerksturm with the Stadtbad and the Mercure Hotel was built in 2012.
