  • More than 30 meters high tower was from the century XVI two very practical uses: here running a boiler of copper that turned the tower into a water tower, and from there the city sources were supplied. But a peculiarity distinguishes the door of Klingen: shares a wall with the Church of St. Wolfgang. In this singular way, a sacred building is connected to one of defence.
