The Bayenturm was built on the banks of the Rhine in the 12th century as a strategic part of the medieval fortifications. Partly destroyed in World War II bombings, it was rebuilt again after the war. Today it houses the FrauenMediaTurm, a collection of 8,000 images and 74,000 text documents on the history of the women's emancipation movement and its consequences.
