  Maeuseturm ( "Mouse-tower") in Bingen
by globetrott
 
 

This small tower - called Maeseturm / mouse-tower - is situated about 3 km downstream of Ruedesheim and Bingen on a small island in the river Rhine. In medieval times there was a rope or a chain going accross the river Rhine,fixed at Maeuseturm, and ships passing by had to pay customs in order to be able to go on with their merchandises. You may not go there, but see it on a small and rocky island from from both sides of the river.

Directions: You may see Maeuseturm on a small island a few km north of Bingen and Ruedesheim. You may see it as well, when passing by by train.
