Martinstor (originally known as Norsinger-Tor, was built in the 13th century. It was part of the original fortifications for the city. Of course, today, the first thing you see when you round the corner from the main street and see Martinstor, is the McDonald's sign which adorns it very clearly. I guess it's a shame to have it there, but I prefer to think of both the sign and the Tower as being unique. They are each totally incongruous to the other.
Martinstor was also known at one time as Porta Sancta Martini.
