Stockturm tower

Short facts

  • Nienburg (Weser)

The Stockturm tower, one of the oldest buildings in Nienburg, is one of the city's landmarks.

The moated castle of the Hoya counts formed a further fortification within the ramparts of the city and served as the permanent residence of the Hoya counts from 1324. After the Thirty Years' War, the castle and outbuildings were demolished. Only the castle tower remained. Military use followed, including as a prison. Here the prisoners were lying "on the floor". In 1975 the stock tower was restored by the Corps Hannoverania on the occasion of the 950th anniversary celebration.

Today it is the domicile of the Corps Hannoverania and the Rühmkorffbund.
