Altmühltor

Altmühltor

On the south side of the tower, you can see the coat of arms used by the city from 1410 until 1809. In the lower half of the crest, there are branches of blue grapes that represent the wine industry - a major economic resource in Kelheim for over 500 years. The vineyards were destroyed by the havoc of the 30 Years War and a change in climate.
