Short facts

  • Einbeck

The tower was named Storchenturm (Storch = stork) due to a couple of storks that nested there over 150 years ago.

TheStorchenturm is a semicircular tower in the former medieval fortification of Einbeck. It is still preserved in full height and has its open side towards the town center.

You can still see traces of the shelling by commandant general Octavio Piccolomini, who sieged Einbeck with his imperial army in October 1641.
