Today’s look up, look down photo was taken in Feldkirch in Austria and shows the Katzenturm. Those of you who speak any German whatsoever may realise that this literally translates as “Cats’ Tower”. Sadly, there were never any actual felines in the tower… the “Katzen” were probably a type of canon. The bell tower of the Katzenturm contains the largest bell in Vorarlberg, and sixth largest in Austria.

It certainly is perfect for the challenge! Thanks for joining us yet again at http://travelwithintent.com/2013/11/06/look-up-betjeman-st-pancras/
Thanks! I specifically didn’t include this photo on my post about Feldkirch so I could use it today 😉
Lol, I do love how precise German is!
Cool picture! I really wonder why it is called like that!
The sign next to it says the Katzen were the canons that used to be up there when it was part of the town’s defensive wall.
It would’ve been cooler if there were cats in it. I’m just saying… :p
It could be a new fairy tale… the cats in the tower 😀
