Sheet makers’ Tower

Each guild in Tongeren was responsible for maintaining and defending 1 of the medieval wall’s 13 towers. One of the towers to survive over the centuries is Lakenmakerstoren, the sheet makers’ tower. This picturesque tower is part of the defence wall along the river Jeker, between Kastanjewal and Sint-Ursulastraat. This semi-circular construction mainly consists of silex, a material from the original Roman wall.
