  The Spitzhelm Towers at the Old Bridge
by Leipzig

The towers are so called for their similarity to Prussians helmets. The twin towers were part of medieval Heidelberg's fortifications. In the west tower are three dungeons. Between the towers, above the gate, are more lockups, with views of the river and the castle; these were reserved for debtors.
