Historic fortifications Mühlhausen

Historische Wehranlage Mühlhausen

Visitors to Mühlhausen town centre still enter in the same way as guests in the Middle Ages did: through one of the four gates in the historic town wall. Large sections of the wall are preserved to this day.

The largely intact Medieval town wall surrounding Mühlhausen is ideal for experiencing the town from an unusual perspective. A total of 330 metres of the historic fortifications can still be viewed. These offer an impression of the defences of the Hanseatic town. An absolute must is the Rabenturm tower with observation platform, providing glorious views over Mühlhausen and the surrounding area.
