The Bayenturm is a medieval fortified tower in the city center of Cologne. The defiant Bayenturm, built like a castle, was built around 1220 as part of the eight-kilometre-long medieval city fortifications. The southern corner tower of the city wall on the Rhine is today one of the few testimonies of this complex, which enclosed Cologne for 700 years. The tower is about 35 meters high with a ground floor and four upper floors including battlements. Today, the Bayenturm is the headquarters of the non-profit foundation "FrauenMediaTurm".
