Salzturm

On Donaulände, by the Nibelungengasse, stands an almost intact tower built under Diocletian (AD 284-305). It once flanked the western ramparts of the Roman camp of Comagenae, which defended the Danube here against Barbarian attacks. It was used as an arsenal in the Middle Ages, then to store salt in the early 19C, hence its present name of "Salt Tower".
