"Zschopauer Tor" Marienberg Travelogue by Russell_the_Wombat

Marienberg Travel Guide: 27 reviews and 157 photos

Only one of the old town gates and a few metres of town wall are still there. Since this gate protected the road that leads to Zschopau, it is named Zschopauer Tor. I challenge you: try to pronounce it...

The building is not too spectacular but since it is the only one of its kind in town, we devoted some attention and some photos to it.

Not far from the gate, a post distance column has been put up in the early 18th century. These things can be found all over Saxony. They give the distances to surrounding cities. They are part of a big project all over the country to measure the roads and mark the distances.

King Kong could not resist trying the wall.
