Wallanlagen Frankfurt

The old city walls may no longer be standing, but most people would say that the five-kilometre-long green belt forming a semi-circle around the old town centre between the upper and lower Main embankments is a more than adequate replacement.

These narrow parklands run along the former course of the mediaeval city walls, which were abraded and landscaped in the early 19th century. The city's one-time line of defence was thus transformed into a beautiful inner-city landscape. The walkways are lined with trees, fountains, modern sculptures and a variety of memorials and monuments.
