This section of the city wall with its two magnificent towers and the Fishermen’s Gate between them is a representative fragment of the 800-year-old wall which once encircled the whole city. In the Middle Ages Worms was a centre of great political importance. Huge assemblies (imperial diets) and court conventions took place here. And it was here that matters of great historical significance were decided.
On the battlement walkway between the “Bürgerturm” (the Citizens’ Tower, which houses the Tower of Visions), and the “Torturm” (the Gate Tower, which houses the Audio Tower), visitors to the museum can get an idea of the city’s size and importance in medieval times.
