The ancient city of Frankfurt is a little more than just the square where the Romerberg Houses are, it's about three of four streets over. If it's true that beauty is condensed then look at where you look you are and get excited! It was destroyed during the war, but who would say, its preservation is excellent. All that was left standing was the home of firefighters. Highly recommended.

In 2000 what was then the largest skyscraper in Europe was completed. It was the first to be encased in glass: Main Tower. There are already a few buildings as tall as this cylindrical tower, some of them are also in Frankfurt. There is one thing that differentiates the Main Tower from the rest: its observation deck, which is open all year round. This platform is in Silver 54 and offers spectacular views of the city and even of the region of Frankfurt am Main.

This is the main building of the guard, which was built in 1671 and renovated in 1728. Famous people were held prisoner here in its jails. Since 1904, it is used for other purposes, now it is a cafe-restaurant in the heart of the shopping and entertainment area of downtown Frankfurt. There are also kiosks and pork sausages in the vicinity, where you can sample the German specialties.
You're wrong. Frankfurt Hahn Airport has very little air traffic. You confused it with Frankfurt Airport which is 10 kilometers from the city of Frankfurt. This airport was a military base. Ryanair does not operate from Frankfurt Hahn, but Lufthansa has its main base there. You put the airport Frankfurt, not Hahn ;))
In the middle of Romerberg square is the Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen, or the Fountain of Justice. When an emperor was crowned, the city's residents would gather in this square. From the fountain, wine came gushing out, and beef skewers were cooked. It is a very pretty fountain, along with the plaza, it is an awesome place. Metro 4/5, Tram 11/12 Romer
Eschenheim Tower was definitely the most beautiful of the 42 old Frankfurt watchtowers. It was constructed in 1428 and it's the tallest tower in Germany. The gardens are next to Bockenheim. U 1-3 Metro, Bus 36 Eschenheimer Tor
The bear and the bull are two stock symbols, especially in Frankfurt, la arge financial city. Opposite the Stock Exchange building find the famous representation of the Bear and the Bull, symbolizing the low and rising stock market, respectively. Tourists are drawn more by the 2 animals that the building itself. So we were not the only ones waiting for a photo with the bull and the bear, we almost had to queue! I liked this place, and I kept wanting to get on the bull, but too many people wish to as well. Metro: U 1-3, 6-7, S 1-6, 8-9
Frankfurt's Jewish cemetery is completely surrounded by a long concrete wall, except for a small iron fence revealing its interior. Outside the names of hundreds of Jews are inscribed along with their date and place of death. The east wall was a little sad, but it's interesting to see. This cemetery was used from 1462-1828. Battonnstraße Line 11, Bus 30/36 Börneplatz
Probably built for the royal residence, it is a beautiful early Gothic Protestant Church from the mid-thirteenth century. From the XV century it has been the Church of the City Council. Outside there are some interesting granite Gothic sculptures and inside there is a nice medieval drum. This place has served as a forum in numerous important festivals, such as coronations, because of its beauty and also because of its position opposite the Römer (city hall).
In Germany Christmas has a different spirit, in every corner you can reacquaint yourself with your childhood. The colors, smells and sounds, everything is designed to give you back some of that innocence. This photo was taken at the Frankfurt Christmas Market, with a mulled wine in my hands and my eyes filled with light and illusion I took this snapshot that reflects perfectly what I felt. I hope that seeing it provides a little Christmas illusion.
Facing the Romerberg buildings we found the Römer that has functioned as a municipality since 1405. On the first floor is the Imperial Hall, where we found portraits in oil of the 52 emperors from 768 until 1806. It has an impressive front, a warm color with gold trim, a "luxury" municipality undoubtedly. Next to this building is the tourist office, with free maps/guides and souvenirs for sale. Metro 4/5, tram line 11/12 Römer.
The River Main flows through Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Hesse. It is 524km long. It only flows through German territory, pouring water into the Rhine River. This river differentiates by its name between Frankfurt am Main in Frankfurt an der Oder. Its name comes from Celtic times, when they called Moin or Mogin. Then came the Romans and used the same name in the Latin version, "Moenus"
Perhaps the best-known skyscrapers that make up the skyline of Frankfurt along with the Eurotower (European Central Bank headquarters) and the twin towers of Deustch Bank. It was once the tallest building in Europe, but now the Moscow Triumph Palace of 264 meters has surpassed it. The building has 56 floors and is 259 metres high. All these skyscrapers are close together. We can visit the 3 cited in one go.
The Goethe House in the old town of Frankfurt am Main was the family residence of Goethe, especially Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, until 1795. Johann Wolfgang was born here in 1749. His father, Johann Caspar Goethe, was a lawyer. His mother, Katherine Elisabeth Textor, was the daughter of the mayor (Bürgermeister) of Frankfurt. Johann Wolfgang lived here, along with his sister Cornelia, until 1765. In 1765 at the age of sixteen, he moved to Leipzig to study law. After that he returned sporadically.
The euro symbol is there because the building behind it is the seat of the ECB (European Central Bank) where all monetary decisions are taken for euro zone countries. If you have any complaints you know where to go.
It was our first day in Frankfurt, 8 in evening, with the sun of a scorching July day, but ... In this country it's time for dinner, right? We realize this while taking photos of the Kaiserdom, and right next door is a restaurant that looked good, so we decided to investigate. We approach the menu there with the letter ... Surprise! We can read the letter in Spanish! So here we were. We sat on the terrace where the atmosphere is lively, and we ask for a menu, we asked for the sausage ... and a dish called "Rostbratwürste" for each, comprising 2 tender sausages, cabbage, and mashed potatoes with beer and mustard sauce, delicious. Think about that dinner and I drool...The restaurant was very good, great food, proper decoration and even had a waitress wearing traditional dress. The price was not bad, € 12 per person especially considering that we were in the center and along the Kaiserdom!
