This towers two archway makes the connection between the big market and the small market. Archeologists claim that the tower was built at the same time as the second defensive wall, between 1224-1241. You can get inside the tower through a small door, from here a spiral staircase leads to the upper storeys. It gained its form through many modifications, from the original tower only the first storey remained.

In 1586 the towers upper storeys collapsed. The small markets fronting bears a memorial board, signaling a tragedy happened in 1586 April 26. On this day Johann David, the archway painter died, buried by the his own work. In two years time the barbican was rebuilt. This was the incident for what the Latin memorial board had been made. On the big market side two stone lion statues watch the passersby. The XIXth century brought a new change, the turret roof system that was used till then was changed to what you can see today.

In the tower can be admired the clockwork and the temporary exhibitions. Any artist can exhibit their work here for free, especially painters are welcome. From the tower from a height of seven storeys opens a beautiful view over the streets and squares, but can be admired also the size of the city.
