Find a mini holiday at Risskov and go on a self-drive trip south to Germany. Visit the 20.5-metre high, late Gothic corner tower, which was built in the 15th century and was formerly located directly on the Rhine. The dungeon in the basement was only accessible through an opening in the vault above. The tower's name comes from the fact that the inn "zum Adler" was later housed in the tower. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is known to have stayed at the inn during his visit to Rüdesheim. Today, the land the tower stands on is owned by the bank Nassausiche Sparkasse, which is located right next door.
