Defensive construction and status symbol
Built between 1564 and 1589 on the site of an older fort
Visible from afar, the Munot towers over Schaffhausen. Built between 1564 and 1589 on the site of an older fortress, it was the monument of a proud and prosperous town, unequaled in the surrounding regions at its time.
Unrealized plans for a later expansion of the Munot, Hans Georg Werdmüller, 1646.
The artillery hatch decorated in the Renaissance style and inscribed with the year 1566.
