The vast towers and walls which surround the Aldstadt of Nuremberg were built in the 15th century. They are largely intact except for the occasional gap in the wall and the loss of one of the more elaborate gates “Königstor” in the late 19th century. Many of the towers sustained damage during the late part of the Second World War.
