Bockenheim Tower in Bockenheimer Warte, Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
The weather today was glorious, although a strong wind made for a very cold day. Even though I was wearing my spouse’s suit jacket over my t-shirt, I was still very cold.
I went to Bockenheim in west Frankfurt a.M. to open a bank account (have to make an appointment days in advance, sheesh) and afterwards, I went to a coffee shop to warm up by drinking coffee while I checked out their free wifi connection. Across a small pedestrian plaza from the coffee shop was this tower (above). I am not sure what this building is called, but there is a coffee shop inside as well as some other shops. Some poking around on the internet suggests that this tower might actually be a very old structure that dates from when Bockenheim was a small village 1000 years ago. If anyone out there knows anything about this tower, I’d sure love to read about it!
