Groitzsch Museum Tower

Short facts

The town tower in Groitzsch is all that is left of the old Romanesque St. Aegidius church.

The town tower in Groitzsch is all that is left of the old Romanesque St. Aegidius church. A fire in 1513 completely destroyed everything except the tower. The 23-metre-high tower was not repaired until 1714. It then continued to serve as an armory, a tower, prison, and shelter. From 1993 to 1995, it was completely renovated and since then has housed a local history exhibition by the Groitzsch Museum. You can climb over 60 steps to the top of the tower and enjoy the view over the town and the Elsteraue.
