Upper Gate by EuroTourData
Upper Gate was built around 1297 as the southwestern city gate of Ahrweiler Medieval Fortifications. Seven stone cannonballs are built into the walls of the gate, which remained from the siege of Ahrweiler by the troops of Archbishop of Cologne Ruprecht of the Palatinate in 1474. Info is based on articles Stadtbefestigung Ahrweiler of German Wikipedia and Obertor Ahrweiler of German AW-Wiki.
