It's a miracle that the oldest part of Frankfurt's downtown survived World War II unscathed and visitors and locals are still grateful for this. The medieval houses and beautiful squares make the historic centre a romantic setting for shopping, eating and drinking.
Frankfurt may be one of the financial centres of the world with ultra-modern, gleaming high-rise buildings, but the historic centre on the Main – the river that flows through the city – still evokes the days of carriages and goose quill pens. Stroll through narrow streets with medieval façades to the Römerberg, a market square packed with old cafés and beautiful shops. The square is lined with beautiful historic buildings; the old city hall is one of the most striking constructions.
