Naumburg's very rare fortification complex from the late Middle Ages.

The Naumburg Marientor is one of the very rare late medieval city gates, which is still completely preserved with the barbican (often called "Fanghof"). The oldest part of the building, the mighty gate tower, dates from the second half of the 14th century, gate house and barbican were added in the 15th century and received their present appearance at the beginning of the 16th century. In the numerous small rooms of the gate, which were formerly used temporarily as a prison, today's visitor finds an informative exhibition about the historical fortifications of Naumburg. From the tower of the gate there is a magnificent view of the silhouette of the city. During the summer months, the gate courtyard is used for theatre and music events. During this time it is partly only accessible to visitors of these events. However, this does not apply to the ascent of the tower, which should not be missed!
