Once a year the „Red Tower“ is open to the public and people can admire what a group of retired gentlemen has done in the last 6 years. As youngsters the tower was their meeting point, now they cleaned and renovated the ancient construction. And there is still a lot of work to do.
The Tower was built as part of the city wall by multiphase expansion by the end of the 15th century.
It also served as a prison.Tons of debris had to be removed with buckets out of the 8m deep hole.
Once you have climbed the steep stairs you have a beautiful and unexpected view over the town.
