Since the mid-1990s, every couple whose members say “I do” at Plüderhausen Town Hall plant a fruit tree on the so-called “Hochzeitswies” (nuptial meadow). The choices include apple, cherry, pear, and plum. Rising from the range of hills of the valley landscape of the Rems, above Plüderhausen, is a tower, which stands in the midst of a fruit orchard known as the “Hochzeitswiese”. The so-called “Wedding Tower” marks out a place and founds the use of an architectural space.
