Hahnentorburg / Rudolfplatz

The Hahnentorburg on Rudolfplatz is one of the original 12 gate castles in the medieval city wall, which was built in the 13th century. The gate secured the western access to the city of Cologne on the road to Aachen.

In addition to the Hahnentorburg, four other gate castles have been preserved: Severinstorburg, Ulrepforte, Eigelsteintorburg and Sachsenturm.
