"Sinwellturm" Top 5 Page for this destination Sinwellturm - The Round Tower Tip by antistar

  Sinwellturm, Kaiserburg, Nuremberg
by antistar

The Round Tower is perhaps the most obvious of the castle's buildings. It is the oldest construction, dating back to the 11th century, and it has the best views out over the city. At least that is what they say. I was unable to find a (legal) way past the unmanned turnstile. The sign on the door instructed me vaguely (in German) to visit the office to buy a ticket. At the "kasse", some distance back from the tower and only roughly marked, I was shooed away as the tower keeper was busy with a large tour group. He didn't get the ?3.00 it would have cost me to climb to the top, which is a shame.

Directions: In the Kaiserburg.
