The stone walls and moat built in the 14th and 15th centuries surrounded Altstadt and Neustadt in order to fend off attacks. During the Middle Ages, the town was entered through its five town gates.

It was only when a tax was introduced and collected at the town gates that the walls and gates briefly became important again. Increasing traffic meant that the gates became a hindrance so they were torn down in the 18th and early 19th centuries. This also affected large sections of the town wall. The gaps that resulted were in part closed up with buildings.

In Altstadt and Neustadt, only parts of the town wall and the remains of the defensive moat have been preserved. The fragments to the east of Rathenower Torturm at Humboldthain and on Wassertorstrasse and Grabenstrasse, St. Annen Promenade and some minor remains on Lindenstrasse and in Deutschen Dorf are worthy of note.
