Remains of the old town wall can still be seen in Obermarsberg today, including the water tower and the Buttenturm. There were a total of seven fortress towers along the town wall. Other watchtowers outside the town, from which the surrounding area could be easily overlooked, were the Donnersberger Warte (also known as the Mäuseturm) and the Priesterberger Warte on the mountain of the same name.

The water tower was named after its second function as a well, which supplied the Oberstadt with water from the valley. There were a total of eleven important wells and springs at Eresburg, which guaranteed the drinking water supply.

A display board provides information about the history and use of the tower in the past.

Unfortunately, it cannot be climbed for insurance reasons. From there you have a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside.
