The Nördlingen Gate, constructed around 1400, features a stepped gable adorned with shell-shaped decorations dating back to the 16th century. Within the vaults of the gate, there are tar holes. Additionally, in accordance with a privilege granted by Emperor Karl IV in 1378, the town mill was built in Dinkelsbühl. This mill, which originated in the 14th century, resembles a fortified structure with a surrounding moat, a parapet, and crenels, reminiscent of a moated castle.

Presently, the town mill houses the Third Dimension Museum, which showcases the historical endeavors of humanity to recreate space in perspective, a practice that has been ongoing since medieval times.

In front of the Nördlingen Gate, there are cabbage beds consisting of twenty plots. These plots have been leased to an equal number of Catholic and Protestant citizens since the mid-19th century.
