    The Neufville Tower belongs to the Bergpark of Villa Anna, which was built on behalf of the Frankfurt merchant of Neufville from about 1890. The building itself was built in 1894. Until about 2015 it was operated as a forest cafe, due to the many shortcomings you can currently only visit it from the outside. However, from here you have a nice view of the Eppsteiner valley down.

    The Neufville tower is part of the Villa Anna mountain park.
    Everything around the tower has grown quite a bit since the tower is currently not in use.

    It is rather questionable whether the tower and the cafe are still open, everything looks a bit neglected.

    The Neufville Tower is located on Eppsteiner Jähenberg (above the city train station) within the Villa Anna mountain park. It opens up views to Eppstein Castle in the middle of the old town, to the Kaisertempel at Staufen, to Wingertsberg and Bienberg with distinctive Wilhelminian mansions. In addition, the view of the exotic trees of the mountain park (e.g. sequoias or hemlocks), which once stood out in the landscape as solitary trees, but are now surrounded by forest.

    The Neufville Tower was built in 1894 as a quotation from Eppstein Castle in the Bergpark Villa Anna, a park of the Frankfurt banking family Neufville from the 19th century. Like the Swiss house, the Villa Anna, the coach house and the pigeon house, it belongs to the architectural features of the mountain park. With the keep and hall building, the artificial ruin is designed as a copy of Eppstein Castle. The master's art and hunting collection was once housed here.
