The Adlerturm (eagle tower)

The Adlerturm belongs to the former city fortification from which except this tower only few wall leftovers are held up. The tower was built at the end of the 15-th century on the upstream directed southeast corner of the Old Town.

It concerns one of the most splendid Late-Gothic military towers in the Middle Rhine of emphatically representative effect.

In the 19-th century an inn called “Zum Adler” from whom the name is derived, was located in the tower. Goethe has taken accommodation in this inn several times during his Ruedesheimer stays, admiring the marvellous view of the Rhine.
