The New Frankfurt Old Town

Frankfurt is reclaiming an integral part of its rich and colourful history: After years of construction, the new old town between Römer City Hall and Emperors' Cathedral is completed.

Frankfurt's reconstructed old town is a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. Here, they’ll have the chance to enjoy a coffee, a museum visit or a shopping spree, all the while basking in the aura of a time-honoured old town nestled in the heart of an international metropolis.

The harmonious architectural blend of the new quarter calls to mind the moving history of Frankfurt. The old town's archaeological gardens feature the remnants of a former Roman settlement and an imperial palace dating back to Carolingian times, explained by way of a special video animation. Last but not least, there’s the so-called Coronation Route, which follows the footsteps of former kings and emperors to the place of their crowning.
