Goethe was a Frankfurt native: “On the 28th of August, 1749, at the stroke of midday, I was born into the world in Frankfurt am Main.” In his autobiography, entitled “From My Life. Poetry and Truth”, Goethe shares stories from his colourful life, focusing in particular on the time between 1749 and 1775. This excellent guided tour also takes a closer look at the Frankfurt of Goethe’s time.
