Long Description:
[DE] Mit dem Graben- und dem Köppelturm (im nordwestlichen Stadtgebiet) gehörte auch der Wehrturm an der Dill mit zur ehemaligen Stadtbefestigung. Noch heute sieht man in seiner Umgebung die Reste der alten Stadtmauer, mit deren Bau man zwar schon 1580 begann, die aber nach vielen Unterbrechungen infolge Geldmangels erst 1620 fertiggestellt werden konnte.

[EN] Like the other towers in the northwestern area of Dillenburg this tower at the river Dill was once part of the fortification of Dillenburg. One can still see around it the remains of the ancient walls, whose construction already began in 1580, but couldn't be completed until 1620 after many interruptions due to lack of money.
