Station 1: The construction
The Porta Claudia was built in several construction phases. The oldest construction was built in 1633 - 1634 and 1645 - 1648 directly behind the bridge over the river Isar in the present village center. After destructions the fortress is rebuilt in 1705 - 1711 and 1719, especially in the north a new dam is built. In the 1760s and 1770s it is extended and in 1796 - 1800 construction phases follow, which lead to its largest extent.
