Tourist Information»Unique to Ingolstadt»Ingolstadt the fortified city»Glacis


Like the magnificent towers and defences, the Glacis, part of the "Schanz" (a series of fortifications), is very much an integral feature of Ingolstadt's medieval cityscape. The wide green girdle that completely surrounds the Old Town was previously the field of fire that had to be kept free in front of the fortress complex. In today's more peaceful age, Ingolstadt's residents and visitors can all enjoy this green area, which is close to the city centre.
