The Rödertor Gate is one of the historic gates of the town of Füssen in Bavaria, Germany. It is located on the eastern side of the town, near the Lech River. The gate dates back to the 15th century and is one of the few remaining gateways that once provided access to the fortified town. The Rödertor Gate is a well-preserved example of medieval architecture and serves as a reminder of Füssen’s rich history. It features a stone archway with defensive elements such as crenellations and slits for archers. Above the gate, you can find a clock tower with a distinctive onion dome. The gate was named after the nearby Röder Tower, which was originally part of Füssen’s defensive fortifications. Today, the Rödertor Gate stands as a symbol of the town’s past and is a popular attraction for visitors exploring Füssen.
