Wangen im Allgäu Women’s Gate


Old town gate from the 14th century

The Frauentor (Women’s Gate) in Wangen im Allgäu is a piece of the town’s history. Located at the northern end of Herrenstraße in the old town, it was built when the town was founded. Just like the St. Martin’s Gate, it was given its present form in 1608 with a simple gabled roof and the striking Renaissance style. The delicate upper corner towers are a real eye-catcher. The Frauentor in Wangen im Allgäu, also known as the Ravensburg Gate, has a total of five storeys and is solidly walled. In the course of its history, it has been repainted several times: In 1589 by Ulrich Wagener, in 1611 by Johann Andreas Rauch and most recently in 1950 by Toni Schönecker.
