In 1987, Borowka signed for SV Werder Bremen, being a defensive mainstay for the club in six of his nine seasons and managing to net at least once in seven of them.

Borowka played in a total of 46 official matches in the 1991–92 season, including eight in Werder's victorious run in the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. The following season he added another league, eventually leaving the club in December 1995 at nearly 34, for amateurs Tasmania 1900 Berlin. Subsequently he played for Hannover 96 (third level, only one month) and Widzew Łódź, becoming the first German to play in the Polish Ekstraklasa before finally retiring in the amateur leagues, at the age of 38.

After retiring, Borowka had various spells in coaching, with little impact.
