Laureate Tower

Sightseeing Lauerturm Ettlingen | guidable

The Lauerturm is a landmark of the city and the last remaining tower of the northern city fortifications. The name of the tower is derived from a medieval trade, the tannery. The "Lauer" was the craftsman who came into contact with the tanning liquid, Loue (also Lowe or Laue). Today, the agricultural and commercial section of the Albgaumuseum is housed here. On the outside of the Lauerturm, you can still see a brick corner from the 14th century in the lower part up to the town coat of arms, on which the round tower was placed. Further walls of the former town fortifications can be seen along Schillerstraße.
