This tour of illuminated Frankfurt begins with two churches, the Cathedral and St. Paul's Church. St. Paul’s is a national historic monument in Germany with great political symbolism because it was the seat of the first democratically elected Parliament in 1848. It is now used primarily for exhibitions and events rather than religious services.
You’ll hear about Frankfurt’s past as a Roman settlement in the Römer Square and see some lovely medieval buildings. The area now contains a complex of nine houses that form the Frankfurt City Hall (Rathaus). The Römer was partially destroyed in World War II and later rebuilt.
Turning to Germany’s illustrious musical heritage, you’ll view the Old Opera, a former opera house built in 1880. Heavily damaged in World War II, it was fully reconstructed and reopened in 1981. Today it functions as a famous concert hall.
Next you will see the banking quarter with its skyscrapers, among which the European Central Bank is the highest. Frankfurt is the financial center of Germany and the largest financial center in continental Europe. It is the seat of the European Central Bank, the German Federal Bank, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange and the Frankfurt Trade Fair, as well as several large commercial banks.
