"Weisser Turm" Weisser Turm - White Tower Tip by Airpunk

  Weisser Turm
by Airpunk

One of the old towers of medieval Nuernberg is the white tower (Weisser Turm). This 13th century tower was part of the city’s defense line for centuries. When this function was not longer needed, a clock was added. Now it serves as an entry for the Nuernberg metro.

Directions: In the pedestrian zone at Ludwigsplatz, in the southwest of the old town.
