In the ancient past, during the medieval era, most large cities in Germany were surrounded and fortified by huge defensive walls. These walls were intended to keep out invaders and to limit the access to the town, so that officials knew who was within the walls at any given time. Most of these walls have since fallen to ruin, but many of the towers that dotted their perimeter remain. Chief among these, for virtue of being the largest and the grandest, is the Goldener Turm in Regensburg.
The Goldener Turm is the largest tower of its type in all the country, and is worth visiting for any German tourist who is looking for something to do that offers an insightful look into the region’s ancient history. The tower is considered to be a masterpiece of period architecture; dating from the 13th century, it is still remarkably preserved today. It functions as one of the primary draws to the town, and has been put to use in the form of apartments attached to the Regensburg University in town.
