Straubing From a Bird’s Eye View

Straubing’s landmark is the historic city tower – a medieval fire and watch tower, ceremonial groundbreaking was 1316, which has been further developed step by step up to the watchman's apartment which has finished in the 16th century. The Gothic building protrudes with a height of 68 meters (223 feet) and eight floors into the white and blue Bavarian sky.

The Man in the Tower
The watchman’s apartment is located underneath the five spires of the former watch tower. This is where the watchmen of Straubing used to live up until the year 1927, watching over the city and warning of fires.
