Climb the DOLDER (1291, 1565)

The Dolder Museum is housed in the city’s landmark tower, once used as a defensive gateway, watchtower and belfry.


The museum allows visitors to discover a fortified vinegrowing town and its evolution from the 13th to the 17th century:

  • its passive defences (ramparts, parapets, towers, gates),
  • its means of active defense (edged weapons and firearms, bourgeois soldiers),
  • its fire prevention and fire-fighting resources,
  • the tower’s occupants and their functions (doormen, guards, watchmen, night watchmen).

From the 4th level, you’ll have an impressive view of the city’s rooftops and the Alsace plain.
