Lindau (🇩🇪Bayern, Deutschland🇩🇪).
„When the sun shines on its colourful roof and catches its yellow upper storey, it almost looks like a second lighthouse: the Mangturm Tower on the harbour promenade. This square stone tower was built in the 12th century as part of the town’s medieval fortifications.
20 metres high Mangturm Tower
The inscription on the tower’s wall reads: “To protect and defend the harbour – a powerful symbol of the former Imperial Free City of Lindau”. The tower stands 20 metres tall with arrow slits in its walls. In the past it was surrounded by water and could only be reached via a drawbridge. This made it a perfect lookout at the end of the town wall, along with its two neighbouring towers in the fishermans’ district, the Petersturm and the Diebsturm.
It was only when Lindau’s new lighthouse was erected in 1856 that the Mangturm lost its job as a lookout and signalling station. An extra level was added and it was covered with the striking glazed roof tiles that are so popular with photographers today. Some photos also show a long, blonde plait that has been let down from one of the arrow slits. This refers to the tale of Rapunzel and is part of the storytelling events that often take place in this historic building. [...]“
