Venue Information - Fortiress City of Büdingen
Impressive fortress walls with their 22 sandstone towers have characterised the face of Büdingen since Ludwig II of Ysenburg in Büdingen (reigned 1461-1511). Among them are the Great Bulwark and the Jerusalem Gate. The fortifications, which are more than 2 kilometres long, are partly accessible. This battlement can be reached via the Jerusalem Gate. Today, the entire complex is regarded as a prime example of the changing fortification construction since the advent of firearms.
The urban ensemble of fortifications and the old town protected by them is unique in its unity and is now a listed building.
