Frankfurt's Eastend and the European Central Bank

Guided city walk for groups

Description

Two hour theme walk for groups around the European Central Bank

Simply put, the architectural contrast between the former industrial zone and the home of the new European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt’s East End district could not be greater. The area around the new ECB complex in particular has undergone massive change, redefining the city district in its entirety. Locals and visitors now have the chance to explore the ”new” East End by way of this highly interesting discovery tour.
