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.
The beautiful half-timbered house has been the town hall since 1405. Located at the “Römerberg” which is called after the building.
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.
The so called “Capitalist Cathedral” is built between 1874 and 1879 in the style of the italian Renaissance. In front of the exchange “Bull and Bear” can be found.
The reconstructed late-classicist building is location for gala-festivities as well as high-caliber concerts with classical music, pop and jazz.
This green area was built at the beginning of the 19th century in place of the dismanteled city fortifications of Frankfurt. Today, it is a popular recreation area for both Frankfurt inhabitants and visitors.
