Wangen im Allgäu Gate of Pfaff


Sightseeing town gate at the town hall

As part of the town wall, the Gate of Pfaff in Wangen im Allgäu had an important task: to connect the upper and lower town. In the 13th century, the wall only encompassed the upper town – in the 15th century, it was also drawn around the lower town. The Gate of Pfaff, the gate at Wangen town hall, was built in the 14th century. Along with the Martin’s Gate, the Women’s Gate and the Leutkircher Gate, it is one of the four remaining gates of the town wall. The four-storey tower stands between two houses and has a special feature: the fourth storey is octagonal and has a clock. On top of it is a small attachment that was added later.
