The town tower, built in the 15th century, can be seen from a distance. It bears the colors of the city of Baden.
It has been renovated several times and damages have been repaired.
The tower served from 1846 to 1985 as a district prison with some cells. Today, however, it has no permanent use. It is visited during the city tour "Witches, Murderers, Prostitutes and Arsonists" and is used from time to time for public events.
Enjoy the best view of Baden!
The medieval castle was built in the 11th century and destroyed by great battles of the Confederates in 1415.
The watchtower as well as the chapel survived the battle and are still in good condition today. The castle ruins are one of the typical features of the townscape.
The foundation walls of an old fortified tower date back to the 13th century. Until 1798 it was the official seat and residence of the federal bailiff of Baden.
After that, it was used once as a schoolhouse, once as a hospital and once as a prison.
Since 1913 it has been used as a historical museum. If you walk towards the museum, you will cross the historical wooden bridge of Baden.
