Show sight on map

The originally at least eight gate houses in the Baroque city of Ludwigsburg were part of the former city fortification. This consisted of an approximately 6 kilometer long and up to 3.5 m high wall, which was provided with gate facilities at its inputs and outputs. Every goal was a gatehouse connected to the city wall, which served as a watchdown and customs house. However, the city should be less guarded in front of external enemies, but rather the partly recruited soldiers in the city and barried in the city should be prevented from deserting. Six of these gatehouses are still preserved today; These are under monument protection.
