More about the History of Friedberg

The old city was refounded by the Hohenstaufen dynasty of the Holy Roman Empire, conveniently located at important trading routes. The city initially rivaled Frankfurt am Main economically, with an important annual trading fair, and initial rapid expansion, though its economic fortunes soon dwindled.

Friedberg sits atop a basalt plateau overlooking the Usa and has been populated at least since Roman times. In Friedberg's suburb Bruchenbrücken, the relics of a Mesolithic settlement were found. The little hillock under the castle was the location of a Roman castle, part of the limes or border fortifications and presumably identical with the castellum in monte tauno that is quoted in Roman records, though this is still under discussion. Ruins of the castle as well as other Roman ruins have been found and conserved, such as the remains of Roman public baths (thermae). The crown and ports atop the Adolfsturm (the most prominent feature of the Friedberg castle) was restored during the 1980s.

Friedberg's old town quarter once housed a prosperous Jewish community that was totally wiped out during World War II. Many of Friedberg's Jews fled to South Africa and the United States before the Holocaust, but all remaining Jews were shipped to Buchenwald. The Judenbad (Jewish bath) contains a memorial to the fallen Jewish soldiers who fought for their fatherland during WWI. Today, only the medieval Jewish ceremonial bath, old synagogue arson memorial, and memorial plaque at one of the city's secondary schools are reminders of this part of the city's past. Sir Ernest Oppenheimer, diamond mining entrepreneur and former owner of De Beers was born and raised in Friedberg.
