Frankfurt Höchst

Guided city walk for groups

Description

Two hour walk through the Frankfurt city district of Höchst for groups

The Frankfurt city district of Höchst is vivacious and culturally diverse. Originally an independent city, Höchst was integrated into Greater Frankfurt in 1928. Today, the former manufacturing centre presents itself as a lively, multifaceted town. Höchst is particularly well known for its picturesque old town, which was monument-listed in 1972. With its winding laneways, historical buildings and beautiful half-timbered architecture, it exudes a charming old-world atmosphere. In July 2013, Höchst’s old town was made an official member of the German Timberframe Road.
