The tower mentioned in the previous tip is shown in close up here with a Rapunzel look alike trailing her hair towards the ground but in picture 2 there is a lady of a different kind altogether.
One of the towers has an observation platform on it at the end of a spiral staircase. It was added in 2000 atop one of the two that remain from the former Citadelle Cyriaksburg and, along with the German Garden Museum (pic 4), which used to be the barracks of the castle that Emperor Friedrich III sanctioned, are some of the remains. The castle itself was built upon a former Benedictine Nunnery.
Pic 5 gives an indication of what it would be like in spring with the crocus and other flowers in bloom below Turm B/Geschützturm I while pic 3 shows you the view, albeit smoggy, from another tower in the gardens that you are allowed to climb.
The tower in pic 1 and 5 has an observatory on the top.
