Wörnitz Gate, Dinkelsbühl

The oldest among the four town gates, the Wörnitz Gate, showcases rusticated ashlars that date back to the Hohenstaufen period. Towards the end of the 14th century, the tower was raised in height. The Renaissance gable, featuring a clock tower, was added in the 16th century. Adorning the outer side of the gate, as seen on all four town gates, is the coat of arms of the imperial town of Dinkelsbühl, depicting three golden ears of spelt on three hills. Alongside it, the imperial eagle symbolizes the town’s imperial immediacy.
