Fladungen has an Ape Tower.
Okay, strictly speaking it's the "Maulaffenturm", the Tower of the Mouth-Ape. And that's really a pun, because in German "Maulaffen" means "gawker". And up on the side of the tower, sitting on a rain spout, there's a little gargoyle. It's vaguely simian, with long arms and a mouth hanging open in indignation or glee. It's hard to be sure, because 600 years of rain and wind have worn on him. He's sort of an ape-ish shaped lump. But his mouth is definitely open.
So, Gawker Tower, or Ape Tower. Either way.
-- Wait, you ask. Why does Fladungen have a tower at all, with an ape or without? Isn't it a rather modest farming town of just 1,500 people or so.
Indeed. But therein lies a story.
