Frankfurt's history has been eventful between when it was first mentioned in an official document in the year 794 and its role as an international financial centre today. German history was made here, and Germany's most famous poet and authoer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, wrote his stories here. Today, Frankfurt am Main is undoubtedly Germany's city with the most impressive skyline. It's no coincidence that the city's monikers are "Mainhattan" or "Bankfurt". The metropolis at the heart of Germany and the heart of Europe has many different faces and is full of contrasts. Not far from the banking towers, you will find cosy pubs serving "Ebbelwoi" - the local version of cider - beautiful parks and an overwhelming variety of cultural institutions: 36 museums, 109 art galleries, about 30 theatres, a number of concert halls, and an opera house of worldwide renown.
To make your discovery tour of the city even more varied and convenient, you can buy tickets for the public transport system from us at reduced rates.
We can also provide you with free city maps, timetables and a small guide for € 1.50.
The building at the heart of the historic city centre became Frankfurt's town hall in 1405. It consists of several medieval buildings which were connected with each other. A neo-gothic facade was added towards the end of the 19th century. The most significant room of the complex is the Kaisersaal (emperors' room), where the walls are decorated with oil portraits of all 52 German emperors since Charlemagne.
St. Paul's Church
The cradle of democracy in Germany - in 1848, the first freely elected German parliament convened here. Today, one of the events the church is used as a venue for is the award ceremony for the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade. The 32-metre round painting by Johannes Grützke inside the church is also well worth seeing.
Three kings were elected in St. Bartholomew's Cathedral after 1356. Between 1562 and 1792, even emperors were crowned in the cathedral. After the cathedral burned down in 1868, the neo-gothic spire, 95 metres high, was added. Ascent to the spire top € 1.50 (pupils), 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Climb about 300 stairs up a narrow staircase.
