The Frankfurt Old Town
The smallest district of Frankfurt with its idyllic location on the river Main is complete again. After years of construction work between the Römer and the cathedral, the project of theold town reconstruction was completed in 2017.
Frankfurt's 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 mixture 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.
