Most of you are probably familiar with the Old Gunpowder Tower (Pulverturm), whose walls are 270 centimetres thick
In the old days, Zug was surrounded by a protecting wall, with the Pulverturm in the south-eastern corner.
Remains of the broken walls can still be seen. The walls of the Pulverturm are as thick as 270 centimetres in parts; this is because the tower was used to store gunpowder. It is not possible to visit the tower at present, though it is available for hire for parties and such like.

Some more interesting background information can be found in this article from zentralplus.ch.
