The history of the Friedberger WarteToday's Friedberger Warte was built in 1478 instead of a watchtower mentioned as early as 1350 as the last watchtower of the Frankfurt Landwehr on the Eulenberg, Bornheim's highest point. The complex consists of a rectangular courtyard with a ground plan of 22 by 28 meters. On the west side is the guardhouse with kitchen and well room. The most prominent part of the building is the slender defense and watchtower, whose slate-covered roof can be seen from afar.
During the Thirty Years' War, the tower and the fortified courtyard were set on fire in 1634. From 1637, the Friedberger Warte was rebuilt and later served as a customs post and a fire watch.
Since 1815 there has been a popular cider pub here, the Hotel Friedberger Warte GmbH took over the pub on August 01, 2009.
For years, the Warte was located in the middle of a traffic circle on Friedberger Landstraße, and thus occupies an island position in the middle of a busy street. This urban situation was remedied from 2011 to 2012 with the construction of the streetcar line and line 18. Subsequently, the surroundings of the waiting room was redesigned into a multifunctional square until August 2017.
