St. Martin’s Tower, Bregenz (must see)

The massive St. Martin's Tower, part of the medieval boundaries of the city, is Bregenz’s tallest landmark. This Baroque structure, used as a granary, was completed in 1602 when a story was added. The oldest part of this complex is the medieval St. Martin's Chapel from 1362. The chapel contains wonderful frescoes, the most significant being the Last Supper, which includes Mary Magdalen washing Christ's feet. The upper floor houses Vorarlberger Militarmuseum, which has fascinating Prehistoric and Roman sections, expositions of traditional clothes, and Romanesque and Gothic religious art. This Turkish style square tower features Central Europe’s largest onion dome with a beautiful view of the lake.
