The oldest marker is dated in the 15th century.

Das Rheintor ist ein dem Rhein zugewandes Tor in der Stadtmauer. Wie in vielen Ortschaften am Rhein üblich, werden erreichte Hochwassermarken an prominenter Stelle angebracht. Durch den Bau des Tores im ausgehenden Mittelalters geben diese Hochwassermarken einen guten Eindruck davon wieder, welche Gefahr von dem Leben am Rhein ausgehen kann. Die älteste Marke ist im 15 Jahrhundert datiert.
