City wall with towers - mandatory motif for every (hobby) photographer.

The trapezoidal city wall from the Middle Ages surrounds the historic centre and is still largely intact. It has a length of 1 km. The town fortifications include 7 towers and 7 gates, gateways and passages. Only the gate tower at the end of the town in the direction of Bad Ems has been preserved in its full height of 18.36 m. The Leaning Tower with its record inclination of 5.22 degrees is better known. Worth seeing is also the Lahn front, it shows the "chocolate side" of Dausenau, a 1a-postcard motif and a must for every (hobby) photographer. Translated with (free version)
