Blauer Turm

The symbolic landmark of Bad Wimpfen. Built around 1200 as the keep on the west side of the Staufen Imperial Palace it was used until well into the nineteenth century as a watchtower, complenting what was probably the oldest continuous tradition of tower wardens in Germany. From the top there is a magnificent view of the Old Town and the Neckar Valley.
