Sights you will see on our Frankfurt city tour:

Städel Museum

One of the most important museums in Germany: 700 years of European art can be seen here.

Holbeinsteg

 The Holbeinsteg is a pedestrian bridge, opened in 1990, connecting the station quarter and Sachsenhausen. Thesuspension bridgewas developed by the architect and city planner Albrecht Speer (Jr.) in the course of the design of the museum embankment (Museumsufer).

Skyline

Frankfurt is the only German city that has a city-like skyline. It is considered one of the city’s landmarks.

Eiserner Steg
(“iron brigde”)

The iron construction – a pedestrian bridge and one of the city’s landmarks – was built in 1868/69 by the Frankfurt iron foundry J. S. Fries. It was intended to demonstrate to the inhabitants of Frankfurter the beginning of the technical age.

Römer

The beautiful half-timbered house has been the town hall since 1405. Located at the “Römerberg” which is called after the building.

Paulskirche
(St. Paul’s church)

Built till 1833, the German National Assembly met here in 1848. Therefor the church is called the “cradle of German democracy”. It was destroyed in 1944, rebuilt in 1948, but without a church blessing.

 An undeserved name, for Frankfurt was never a bishop’s seat. But the former imperial church was from 1356 electoral, and later also coronation church of the roman emperors.

Goethe House

In 1733 the Goethe family acquired two half-timbered houses in the Hirschgraben, which were combined by rebuilding. Here, the young Goethe, worked on classics such as “Götz von Berlichingen”, the Urfaust, and summed up his love affair in “The Sorrows of Young Werther”. The Goethemuseum with important paintings and handwriting collections is located in the adjoining house.
