Friedberg The Essential
Interesting
The town, founded by the Hohenstaufen dynasty, has two distinct historical centres: the enclosed section around the imperial castle, overlooked by Adolf's Tower, and the burgher town, where you can see the Jewish Baths, a well surmounted with a cupola where the Jewish women performed their ritual ablutions. Visit the church (13C and 14C), which contains an unusually tall ciborium as well as the Friedberg Madonna.
