Mäuseturm | Bingen am Rhein

Standing on a rocky island in the Rhine is the former watch tower which gets its name from the old German word “musen” (= to spy). It was built in the 14th century as a signal and watch tower for the Ehrenfels customs post. In the 19th

century it was restored in the neo-Gothic style and until 1974 it served as a signal station for the regulation of shipping on the river. ‘Mouse Tower’ is associated with the well-known legend about the cruel Archbishop who couldn’t escape a

horde of mice, even on the island in the Rhine
