Like the Zimmer Tower, the Prisoners' Gate was part of the city fortifications. It dates back to 1375 and was built in Gothic style with classicist elements added in the 18th century. From the 16th century until 1930 it was used as a prison, hence its name. In 2009 the gate was fully restored, it now houses a museum and part of it is used by a hotel
