The Enderttor, a relic of the old city fortifications built by Prince Balduin in 1332, is situated in today’s pedestrian precinct in the north of the city. Its name is taken from "Enderttal" (Endert Valley) which lies beyond the city limits. In times gone by, the gate protected against attacks from the valley and periodically even served as the town prison.
The Enderttor is the most massive of the three gates still in existence in Cochem. It was particularly well known by stagecoach travellers to and from Frankfurt and Cologne who used to be served as guests in the neighbouring Gatehouse Inn.
