The Eigelsteintor (Eigelstein Gate) is one of the city’s three remaining gates in the old medieval wall. The gate tower was originally built in the 13th century. Two semi-towers flanking the center section were added in the Middle Ages.

Today, the Eigelsteintor forms the center of the lively pedestrianized entertainment district of Agnesviertel, full of bars and sidewalk cafés.
