The Weinheim town fortification originally had seven towers. Only three remain today: the Red Tower, which can be found between the market square and Hermannshof, the Witch Tower, which was once part of a double tower, and finally the Blue Hat, which stands on the edge of the Schlosspark.

The Blue Hat, which was once covered with blue slate, is currently completely covered in white. Its sandstone wall is being renovated and damaged parts on the roof are also to be replaced.

  1. I very much love the castles and towers and reminds me of fairytales. Imagine living near them its like you are part of a storybook world! Love it!

    Happy All Seasons and Happy June!


  2. It’s nice when cities and people preserve as much of the past as they can. We have a section of our small town that has been dedicated as a historical area. We have a short history, only since about 1900, but it is important to remember where we came from and our history. – Margy
