As part of the town fortifications of Kirchberg an der Jagst, the town tower was built in 1400 by the imperial towns of Rothenburg, Dinkelsbühl and Hall as the owners of the town at that time. The 45 meter high tower contains historic bells from the 17th century. Adjacent to the city tower is the baroque city gate from 1774, which originally served as the local prison. From that time it still contains two cells with a cot and an iron stove. The alliance coat of arms, the envy head and an inscription board also remind of this time. Next to the town gate, between burgher houses, you can also see remains of the town wall, partly with a covered battlements.
