Plönlein and Siebers Tower.

"Plönlein" (little place) is one of the most beautiful scenes of a medieval town in Germany. It is formed by a fork in the lanes, one leading off right to the Double-Bridge in the Tauber Valley, and the other lane (left) leading out of the (former) southern Suburb making a small triangular place. The name "Plönlein" originated from the Latin name being "planum". In front of the small framework house are a fountain and fish cages where the Tauber fishermen kept their fish until time of sale. The Sieber's tower was built around 1385 and is a gate built at the first town expansion. **
