A visit to Frankfurt

A visit to Frankfurt
www.frankfurt.de www.germany-tourism.de Frankfurt is a fascinating meeting of new and old. It has always been one of Germany’s most affluent cities and has in many ways been the motive force for German development through centuries. Frankfurt is with its airport and its commerce a nerve centre for all of Europe, and the international atmosphere in the modern city with the many fine museums and cultural offerings renders a visit here an exciting experience.

The distances are not long. At one moment you can walk among the old and idyllic timber-framed houses in the old part of the city, and the next you are surrounded by a long row of modern skyscrapers. Frankfurt’s surrounding countryside is extremely beautiful, offering many tour options. Mainz, the home town of the health resorts Wiesbaden and Gutenberg, is not far away, and the drive through the river valley of the Rhine between Rüdesheim and Koblenz, passing the Lorelei-rock is unforgettably beautiful. Have a nice journey!

Frankfurt

Historical outline

Historical outline
The town Franconovurt, town of the Franks, is mentioned for the first time in 794, when Emperor Karl the Great turned it into one of his residential towns, and in 822 Emperor Ludwig started building imperial palaces and noble mansions. Even during the Roman period, the city had been a centre for commerce, and Frankfurt’s trade fairs and markets had in the 1100s achieved so much recognition and importance that they attracted traders from large parts of Europe. From 1152, Frankfurt came to house the ceremony of German coronations. It was Frederick Barbarossa, who implemented this when he was coronated king of Germany in the city. Subsequently, the city advanced quickly and became one of Germany’s most significant cities, not least due to its commerce. In 1240, Frederick II guaranteed security for people passing through Frankfurt, and this brought about even further growth for the large trade fairs and trade in general. Frankfurt was thus the most profitable city in Germany. In 1356, Frankfurt became again the place for the coronation of German kings. However, only 16 years later the city founded its own city state, Freie Reichstadt Frankfurt. This happened after it had bought itself free of Karl IV. In this way, a high degree of autonomy came to prevail, though the city was formally subjected to the emperor himself. In 1405 the local government bought the two buildings that still function as Frankfurt’s city hall. In the same century the Jewish quarter was established, and moreover, the supreme imperial court was founded in the city. In the beginning of the 1500s the Reformation was gradually introduced. Still, it did not become official

until 1533, which at the same time was when public execution of the Catholic faith was prohibited for a period of 15 years. Frankfurt’s financial stock exchange was established in 1585, and the city thereby came to control the currency and financial means on its own for the first time. At this point Frankfurt’s affluence far surpassed that of most other German cities. Over the centuries Frankfurt was repeatedly occupied. In 1631-1635, Swedish troops came to the area in connection with the Thirty Years’ War. During the Seven Years’ War it was France, which in 1759-1763 captured the city, and a few decades later French forces came back during the Napoleonic wars. In 1742-1745, Frankfurt became imperial residence city of The German-Roman Empire, when Karl VII relocated his court there. A few years later, in 1749, one of the city’s great sons was born; Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose works have subsequently become world-renowned. The last imperial coronation took place in Frankfurt in 1792. It was the inauguration of Franz II’s, which was conducted in the city that then housed 35.000 inhabitants. A few years later the city advanced further when the old defence buildings were demolished and transformed into parks in 1804. In 1806 the German-Roman Empire collapsed, and after Napoleon’s fall the German area was divided into more than 30 city states and smaller land areas. In 1816 Frankfurt became domicile for the German parliament under the German Federation, but could not govern efficiently in the still divided country. In 1848 a number of people met in Frankfurt’s Paulskirche. It was the first free parliamentary meeting in Germany, and it was to become the beginning of the subsequent German democratization process.

Frankfurt

Historical outline

1866 saw the end of Frankfurt’s status as free city when Prussia took the city by conquest during the annexing of the German area. Five years later the French-German War was ended by a peace accord in Frankfurt. In the early 1900s, 400.000 people lived here. Large constructions such as the new Frankfurt Airport (1926) and the head office of the industrial giant IG Farben (1931) were established.

During World War II, Frankfurt was subjected to severe battles and countless air raids, which reduced 80% of the city to ruins. The most vital trade and industry of the area had been obliterated, and reconstruction was initiated. After World War II Frankfurt became one of the symbols of the German Wirtschaftswunder, the explosive economic development. Modern districts and financial institutions mushroomed in the city whose skyline, with the many skyscrapers of glass and steel, became unrivalled in Europe. At the same time a reconstruction of Frankfurt’s old quarter around R?merberg was implemented; here, it is possible today to experience the ambience of centuries gone by

1. R?merberg

R?merberg is Frankfurt’s city hall and historical centre and has been so since the Middle Ages. Most of the original buildings were destroyed by a bombardment in 1944, and in the 1980s the area was carefully rebuilt according to the original designs to the greatest extent possible. In the middle of the square you find the Fountain of Justice, Gerechtigkeitsbrunnen is a fountain in which the goddess Justitia stands. The fountain symbolises fertility, and during imperial coronations the water was replaced with wine at the emperor’s expense. Today the square is very cosy with the many charming timber-frame houses. During Christmas the place is particularly impressive with the traditional German Christmas market. Over the years R?merberg has been the setting for major popular events such as festivities at imperial coronations and J.F. Kennedy’s speech to 150.000 people in 1963.

1a. R?mer

The church Alte Nikolaikirche is believed to have been built as a small chapel as early as the 1000s. In the 1200s the first actual church was built around the existing old wooden chapel, which was torn down once it was completely enclosed by the new church. After the Reformation in 1530, many years passed during which the church was not used the way it was intended. Not until 1721 was the church consecrated again, this time as an evangelical church. Through the 1800s in particular, the church underwent a fair amount of reconstruction. Major ceremonies have been conducted in Alte Nikolaikirche through the centuries, including coronations. On those occasions, the general public had access to the roof gallery 1c. Kunsthalle Schirn

R?mer is Frankfurt’s city hall – a function the threegabled house has had since its erection in 1405. The building is now one of the city’s landmarks. These days R?mer is still used by the local government for various purposes. The most famous hall in R?mer is the Imperial hall, Kaisersaal. The hall was the place where the coronation banquets for the emperors of The German-Roman Empire were held since 1612. Today, portraits of all 52 emperors of the Empire are hanging on the walls. 1b. Alte Nikolaikirche

Saalgasse 19 (R?merberg) www.historisches-museum.frankfurt.de U-Bahn: R?merberg Historisches Museum Frankfurt is the historic museum of the city of Frankfurt. The collection of the museum thus conveys the city’s history from the earliest settlements up till today. At the same time, the interesting museum provides an up-close image of everyday life for the citizens and also delineates the technical and industrial development of the area as special themes.

5. Kaiserdom St. Bartholom?us

3. Saalhof & Rententurm
Mainufer www.historisches-museum.frankfurt.de U-Bahn: R?merberg The building Saalhof with the tower Rententurm is the oldest preserved building in Frankfurt.

Today the buildings are a part of Historisches Museum Frankfurt

4. Leinwandhaus
Weckmarkt 17 U-Bahn: R?merberg The remarkable Leinwandhaus is a late-Gothic merchant house built in 1390. The house has been partially reconstructed over the years, but radiates a particular authenticity with its castle-like architecture. Today a municipal gallery is located in the building.

Domplatz www.dom-frankfurt.de U-Bahn: R?merberg Frankfurt’s cathedral, Kaiserdom St. Bartholom?us, is one of Germany’s large historic churches. As early as approximately year 680, the first Merovingian church was built on the site, and over the following centuries a number of expansions were made. Initially Kaiserdom was a Gothic longhouse, which was built in 1250-1269. The actual church interior was built from the beginning of the 1300s to the end of the 1400s, whilst the tower was only finished in 1514. The major and ongoing building activity was attributable to the significance of the cathedral, which was emphasised in 1356 when it was designated a polling station for kings of The German-Roman Empire. Furthermore, in the period between 1562 and 1792 ten imperial coronations were performed here.

9. Museum Judengasse
Kurt-Schumacher-Stra?e 10 www.juedischesmuseum.de U-Bahn: R?merberg The street Judengasse was originally Frankfurt’s Jewish ghetto and existed as such in 1462-1796. With the abolition of the ghetto coercion, Judengasse was slowly converted into also being the city’s slum, and after approximately 100 years, more or less all of the houses were renovated at the end of the 1800s. After 1945 the street was almost unrecognisable, and not until construction for an office building began in the 1980s did they discover the remains of the street. It was decided to set up the Museum Judengasse, which describes life in the street through, for example, the historical and demographical development.

8. Staufermauer
Fahrgasse/T?ngesgasse U-Bahn: R?merberg Frankfurt used to be enclosed by a city wall, which was built for protection of the current old part of the city.

Staufenmauer’s active history actually ended in 1582, when it was broken down piece by piece.

Goethe was born in 1749 and where he lived during the early years of his life. Here he wrote, among other things, The Sorrows of Young Werther and the beginning of Faust. Adjacent to the house a museum has been set up, which for example through many paintings and documents depicts Goethe’s life, works and contemporaries.

It was the Protestant head church of the city until 1944, but as early as 1848-1849 it made German history. It was reputedly here that the German National Assembly met for the first time, taking the first step towards the German constitution. Today various cultural and political events are held in the church.

24. Liebfrauenkirche
Liebfrauenstra?e 4 www.liebfrauen.net S-Bahn: Hauptwache U-Bahn: Hauptwache Liebfrauenkirche is a church that serves both as abbey and parish church. It was constructed as a small building in 1321, but was expanded through the 1400s, and completed in 1478. The interior from this period, as well as the window sections are worth seeing in Liebfrauenkirche, which today is a fairly active, religious gathering point in Frankfurt.

23. Paulskirche

25. Katharinenkirche
An der Hauptwache www.stk-musik.de S-Bahn: Hauptwache U-Bahn: Hauptwache Katharinenkirche is Frankfurt’s largest Protestant church. The church was established as an abbey in the mid-1300s, though the existing church is from 1678-1681. The style is primarily Baroque, but with Gothic features. The interior of the church was very beautiful with countless impressive frescos until damages occurred in 1944. Today, some works are again visible inside the church, where concerts are held on a regular basis. Katharinakirche was, incidentally, parish church of the Goethe-family, and they came here frequently during their time in Frankfurt.

Paulsplatz 1 U-Bahn: R?merberg The Paulskirche church was built in 1789-1833 on the site where the former abbey Barfü?erkirche stood, when the consecration took place. Paulskirche is built as a round church in Classicistic style, not least inspired by the Pantheon in Rome.

28. Eschenheimer Turm
Eschenheimer Tor Bearing the same name, the city gate was on the Eschenheimer Tor square until 1810.

The spire-adorned tower was built in true fortress style in 1400-1428, and the impressive piece of work is today one of the city’s landmarks

An der Hauptwache 15 S-Bahn: Hauptwache U-Bahn: Hauptwache Hauptwache was the Frankfurt militia’s headquarters, built in 1671 and rebuilt in 1729-1730 to the current Baroque appearance. For a while there was a prison in the building, which in 1904 was converted into a café. The square by Hauptwache is one of the city’s famous and bustling squares, and various military parades have previously taken place here, hence the name Paradeplatz, as it was called until 1864.

B?rsenplatz www.boerse-frankfurt.com S-Bahn: Hauptwache U-Bahn: Hauptwache Frankfurt’s stock exchange, B?rse, is one of the busiest in the world and the most significant stock exchange in Germany. From as early as the first trade fair in 1150, trading has flourished in the city, which therefore naturally acquired its own actual stock exchange; this happened in 1681. The stock exchange has been located in different buildings in the city. Today, part of the institution is housed in the opulently decorated 1800s-palace on B?rsenplatz.

Opernplatz 1 www.alteoper.de U-Bahn: Alte Oper Frankfurt’s beautiful opera house was inaugurated in 1880, in part helped out by private donations. It was completely destroyed during World War II, but since then the exterior of the building has been rebuilt according to the original plans. The construction was completed in 1981. There are two halls in the opera house, Gro?er Saal with approximately 2.500 spectator seats and Mozart-Saal, which can accommodate 700 opera guests. The halls were decorated anew during the reconstruction.

48. Rhein

Between Rüdesheim and Koblenz www.st-goarshausen.de Perhaps the most beautiful course of the Rhine is the stretch between Rüdesheim and Koblenz, which is a unique experience of nature with many historic attractions on the way. The Medieval castles lie like a string of pearls on the top of the ridge, which stretches all the way along the winding course of the river. One enthralling view and idyllic town supersedes another, no matter which side of the river one chooses to drive on. The trip to the top of the Lorelei rock at St. Goarshausen is a must. It is said that the sirens sing there and lead the river captains astray. From the 132-metre-high mountaintop it is possible to see just how demanding the Lorelei Mountain is to steer clear of for the many riverboats. At its narrowest, this winding section of the river is only 113 metres wide, and the depth is 25 metres. There are also trains running between Rüdesheim and Koblenz, and it is a very fine ride.

Kaiserthermen Weberbach Around the year 400 the Romans built some of the largest baths ever built; the Imperial Baths of Trier. With a little good imagination, a tour here is almost like travelling into the Roman Empire and becoming a part of the Roman cultural life.

50d. Kurfürstlisches Palais Konstantinplatz The elector palace of Trier is beautifully located next to the old Constantine basilica of the town. It is regarded one of the finest Rococo palaces in the world. The palace was built in 1615; the very beautiful Rococo south wing did, however, not get its current appearance until 1756 under Archbishop Johann Philipp von Waldersdorff.
