“Untere Rheinpforte”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2012

From the Rhine gate in the downstream direction of the Rhine. The Josephstor (Joseph’s gate) is smaller than the Rhine gate and never had a Tower. A simple wall gate which, for security reasons, was bricked up during the thirty years period, as this passage did not hve to be used in times of necessity: the area behind the gate was at the time barely exploited. Until 18th century the gate had a gate House, at the second floor at the Rhine side in a wall cavity the statue of St. Joseph, an 18th century addition, the gate was formerly known as "Untere Rheinpforte". Another long forgotten name which was still used in the early 20th century was "Pützgassertor" (free translated: stucco alley gate).
