Great holmertz 2021-12-08 9:29

Hello Kari,
The tower has a dramatic history even though it looks mainly nice today. The view is well framed by trees and as always it's a benefit that we see two persons outside. Maybe the note should have a reference to its old use as part of the city's defense and as a storage for gunpowder.

Default To holmertz: Gunpowder tower

Tack Gert,
Yes, what else could the powder be! I only found German Wikipedia page of this tower, and even with help of Google translator I didn't want to add my own interpretations.

I am not sure that everyone understands the German word.
