Over 30 meters tall, this tower has mainly served practical purposes since the 16th century. The tower was converted into a water tower, after setting up of a copper vessel, serving the town’s drinking fountains ever since.
One of the special features of Klingentor is that it shares a wall with St. Wolfgang Church, forming a link between worldly and spiritual architecture that is quite unique. It is said that it was possible to climb the tower from inside the church, enabling the defenders to fire on the attackers who had already made it as far as the ramparts.
