It was part of the former fortifications, is the only city gate that has survived to this day and is the landmark of Leoben. The popular name of the building comes from the similarity of its hemispherical roof with a mushroom cap, which cantilevers significantly over the narrower upper storey with its eaves. The actual name, which is rarely used in everyday life, is the toll tower.
