"Markusturm" Top 5 Page for this destination Town Gates and Gate Towers Tip by globetrott

  Markusturm on the backside
by globetrott

Markusturm is another tower of the inner fortification-wall and at least from the inner side it almost looks like in the medieval times. At Markustum you may get a good idea, what all of the gates had looked like once. This gate is mostly overseen by the tourist-crowds, because it is rather in an area where the local people live and have their shops for everyday life and only a very few tourist-shops.
Markusturm looks a lot more romantic from the other side, as you may see in my tip about "Romantik Hotel am Markusturm"

Directions: Markusturm is in Roedergasse, leading from Roedertor to Marktplatz.
