History of Nördlingen Fortifications
The construction of the city wall began in 1327 by order of Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor. Between 1536 and 1613, four gates and two towers were completely rebuilt. In addition, seven flanking towers and two bastions were built during this period. During the Thirty Years' War in 1634, the fortifications of Nördlingen resisted the siege by the imperial forces in advance of the Battle of Nördlingen.
