Bockenheimer Wochenmarkt General Information
  • Type: Community
  • Nearest Train: Bockenheimer Warte
  • Venue Description:
    The Bockenheim watchtower is the only one of Frankfurt's Medieval towers without a fortified courtyard and water system. Constructed in 1434-35, the building acted as the lookout tower along the road that leads to Cologne. The Gothic tower, which was built in a cylindrical form, has a pyramid shaped roof and battlements. The half-timbered guard house is octagonal in shape and was accessible only by retractable steps. If need be, a large number of defenders could take cover in the room. There is a market at the foot of the tower once a week.
