St. Aegidien's Church and tower living quarters

The 75-metre high twin spires of St. Aegidien's Church tower above Oschatz and are visible throughout the town. The town watchman and his family used to live in the south tower. The historic living quarters can be reached by climbing 199 steps and are well worth a visit. Visitors making the climb are rewarded with a "Schälchen Heessen" (a nice cup of coffee) and a fascinating view of the town and the Oschatz countryside.
