  • Eigelstein Torburg like Hahnen gate represent the vestiges of the Roman past of the great wall that bordered the town. Both doors with torres were part of other 12 ancient medieval gates of entry and exit to the city. In the middle ages were rebuilt with almenares and needles with an imprint more military and protective of the walled city. Today, they remain in the urban fabric as a symbol or small milestones. This door in particular, is in a neighborhood of the North, picturesque (many Turkish shops), breweries, pubs to stop us one minute and between this historical framework enjoy the flavors of Cologne!

  • It's an old gate. Has got some good history to it but yeah, it's an old gate
  • Nice looking. Good lunch restaurants nearby.
  • Found this on accident, great picture spot
  • We started our free walking tour from here. Easy enough to find and has a decent bit of history attached. Nothing much to see unless you hear the stories.
  • Love these old city gates, but it seems that there is much more to this place than meets the eye.
