Fodor's Review

Once a part of the city wall, the tower dates from 1361. Inside the arch on the keystone is a relief from 1933 that bears a wise caution for anyone crossing the street: Lappi tue d'auge uf ("Open your eyes, you idiot!"). The tower's counterpart, the Obertorturm, lies just off the Fronwagplatz.
