When Auma was first mentioned as a town in 1331, it is believed that the town fortifications already existed, but work on building the actual town wall did not probably start until 1360. 
Remains of the town wall can still be found in the north-west and south-east of the town. The Auma Cultural and Local History Association has set up information boards at some points. There are also relaxation areas like the school park on the north-western side and the small, park-like area next to Unterer Graben and they encourage people to spend time there. An historical dovecote stands right next to the Tor zum Wendischen Dorf; it was moved to this site in 2007.
