Sights in Frankfurt

Romans on the Römerberg

The town hall of the city of Frankfurt. This is where the newly crowned rulers of the Holy Roman Empire were served their banquet after the coronation ceremony in the cathedral.

Imperial Cathedral

An honorary title for a normal Catholic church. St. Bartholomew’s was never the seat of a bishop, but is honorarily called ‘cathedral’ because of the imperial coronations.

Old Opera House

Citizen engagement has always been a priority in Frankfurt. For example, the opera house was financed twice by the citizens’ initiative. Firstly, its original construction and secondly its reconstruction after the destruction during the Second World War.

Goethe House

The birthplace of Frankfurt’s greatest son gives an impression of how well-off citizens of the city lived in the 18th century.
