1. Rathausturm Bad Homburg (City Hall Tower).
2. Plaque on the City Hall Tower.
3. Hexenturm (Witches' Tower).
4. Plaque on the Witches' Tower.
5. Der Stumpfe Turm (The Blunt Tower).
The plaque on the City Hall Tower reads: "City Hall Tower, part of the city fortifications of the 14th century. Between 1603 and 1656 the victims of the witch hunts in the jurisdiction of Homburg were imprisoned here until they were executed."
This City Hall Tower is at the site of the old medieval City Hall (GPS 50°13'47.65" North; 8°36'38.97" East), not to be confused with the modern City Hall at Rathausplatz.
The plaque on the Witches' Tower reads: "Witches' Tower, part of the city fortifications of the 14th century. Built again in 1905."
So this is not the original tower, but even the replica is now over a hundred years old.
Directions: The Witches' Tower is at GPS 50°13'45.27" North; 8°36'36.02" East.
