Discover the city walls of Pingyao

Ontdek de stadsmuren van Pingyao

The impressive city walls surround the old town of Pingyao. The walls date from the year 1370, are 10 meters high and up to 6 kilometres in length. You can climb the wall for a nice view of the city. In the south-western port (Lower West Gate) and the southern port (Yingxun Gate) it’s rewarding to look at the walls from outside the city. Additionally you will find at the Yingxun Gate remains from the former Pingyao (follow the street that runs under City Tower). Old horse carts and tracks which were made during the ride on the road, are preserved and exhibited there just before the exit.
