Topping the must-see list are the sturdy 14th-century city walls complete with gate towers such as the medieval Linzertor and skeletal Böhmertor , which reflect Freistadt’s past need for strong defences as an important staging point on the salt route to Bohemia. The moat encircling the town is now given over to gardens and allotments.
