"White Tower" Weisser Turm - White Tower Tip by Leipzig

  the white tower
by Leipzig
 
 

I have no clue why this tower is called "White Tower" as it was made of red stone. It was part of the old city fortification and acted as watch tower.
The tower marks today the entrance to the pedestrian zone "Breite Strasse"
