The gate tower on the northern edge of the old town is the only one of the fortified gatehouses that is still there. It was named after Saint Martin, whose image is depicted in a relief on the outward side above the gate: Saint Marting divides his cloak and gives one half to the naked beggar.

Entering the old town through Martinstor you reach Wormser Straße, one of many well preserved streets. Time stood still here, or so it seems. Explore the side lanes, you will find many pretty views.
