The Fuchsturm, or The Fox Tower, is an old medieval castle keep located on a mountain near the city of Jena, Germany. It is one of the "seven wonders of Jena", described in an old Latin verse, the meaning of which was traditionally only understood by students of the local university. Knowing for example that "Vulpecula Turris" in the verse referred to this building, was seen as proof that the person in question had actually been to the city. But with that, the time has come for us to leave Jena, and next time well be visiting the "Florence of the Elbe", Dresden!
