Frankfurt’s city center was almost completely destroyed in World War II. In the past six years, the city’s core district between the Cathedral and “Römerberg” was rebuilt. Squares and streets have widely been restored.
The city with the only skyscraper skyline in Germany has had a new historical town center since 2018. Not only Frankfurt's contrasting architecture attracts visitors to Hesse, but also the tales of the Brothers Grimm.
The construction hoardings were removed in May and now the big housewarming party is taking place. About half a million visitors are expected at the opening of Frankfurt's reconstructed Old Town this weekend.
