Tower 24

Listen to the text of the page

The Tower is a medieval Gothic  brick tower built in the second half of the 14th  century as part of the eastern section of the defensive walls. It is the  best preserved of about 30 in total, which originally formed the entire system of city fortifications. In 2010, it was restored and rebuilt  to records from the 15th  century. The tower is characterized by an opening from the city side – with a shell, narrow arrow slits with a glyph (14th  century) and observation-artillery openings on the top floor (15th  century). The exhibition here presents the armor and weaponry  from the 14th-15th centuries – the period of the Teutonic Knights war. There are replicas of armor and weapons - ranging from melee weapons to firearms. Another aspect that the exhibition also shows aspects of everyday life in the tower and in medieval Lębork.
