Poznań city walls - a complex of defensive buildings erected to protect the medieval location city from external interference. The defensive walls of Poznań were built around 1280 in place of wooden-earth fortifications . By the end of the 13th century, there was already a full perimeter of the wall, 2300 steps (about 1725 m), about 7 m high (the towers of the inner wall were 11 m), with 32 bay windows. It was built of brick on a stone base. There were 4 gates in the wall. Today we can see fragments of the defensive wall at Ludgardy street , a reconstructed section of the wall together with the "Strażacka" tower and the Katarzyna tower, the Cannon Tower from the outer ring of fortifications at Masztalarska street and the southern fragment of the later outer walls near the former Wrocław gate. Near the fragments of the medieval city walls , between the buildings of the Provincial Headquarters of the State Fire Service and the City Headquarters of the State Fire Service there is a tourist trail. This is one of the attractions on the Royal-Imperial Route. There are three towers on this section: the Katarzyna Tower, the Fire Tower and the Artillery Corner Tower. In August 2013, 17 commemorative plaques commemorating the course of the walls and informing about their individual elements were embedded in the sidewalks in the area of the Old Town. Definitely worth a visit.

Artillery Corner Turret is one of the most famous fragments of the medieval walls of Poznań. It is part of the external wall surrounding the city from the northwest. Most of is was disassembled at the end of the 19th century. You can see some slit shooting ranges. From the inside there is also the indentation on the wall, in the place where the wooden bridge for the defenders was once installed.

I found the remnants of the city wall in walking to the outdoor market. Whilst of it may be of interest to historians my experience was that it was mostly used as a backdrop for "selfies". I am ashamed to say that I used it to take framed shots of the nearby fire station.

If you appreciate the finer points of bricklaying, you're in for a treat here! No really, there was some information on the history of the walls construction, which I found interesting, and would say its worth the visit

I love the history attached to whatever city or town I choose to visit ,in Poznan I discovered the Medieval City Walls and I loved it.
Erected in the 1200's ,these defensive walls and towers protected the city but later on confined the growth of the city which probably explains why there's so little of the Medieval City Walls that remain ,what remains is beautiful ,the best remains ruins I viewed were located on Skwer Romana Wilhelmiego,really impressive ,there's an information plaque here that outlines the history of the Medieval City Walls ,it's most definitely well worth checking out if you're planning a holiday to Poznan.

Walked through here on the way to the old town square. A cool bit of history and architecture if you’re into that kind of stuff, but not worth a whole afternoon.

It was raining so we only took a quick look at the walls. Apparently, they used to go around the whole city. I love that they saved some of the walls as a reminder.

A rebuilt portion of the old city wall and towers. Through the old town area you can see on the sidewalks where the old wall used to be. For mi,Italy types it's interesting to see the weapon slots.
