Novelty! Fortress Tower - Stein
near Albrecht Dürer (house).

This tower, adjacent to the Albrecht Dürer house, is occasionally referred to as the Dürerturm,
possibly for the gratification of the tourists.
Its name, the window configuration plus other details, are somewhat fanciful, because in real life, the tower is called the Neutorturm, It was rebuilt in its present form in 1564 and has five square windows aligned vertically above an arched door. It guards the Neutor (gate). This stein was manufactured by Reinhold Hanke.
