"Frankfurt has few monuments, and the Roman Square remains after 80% of the old city bombed by World War II was destroyed by the bombing. The reason is called the Comic Man Square because the ancient Roman Empire really had rule here, there were also troops. Now there is only a church and surrounding German-style residential. The square stands in the middle of the statue of the goddess of justice."

"Frankfurt Cathedral is the most sacred place in Frankfurt and also the landmark of the city. It is difficult to photograph the exterior of the church because the square in front of the church is too small and surrounded by buildings. But the towering spire can be seen in many parts of the city."

Reasons to Recommend: Frankfurt Cathedral is located in the Roman district, adjacent to the Roman Forum. This Gothic church was built between the 13th and 15th centuries. In the 14th century, it became the coronation site of the Germanic kings. A total of ten emperors of the Holy Roman Empire held coronation ceremonies here. Therefore, it is also known as the "Emperor's Cathedral". The Frankfurt Cathedral was once destroyed by fire, and now it is in front of people's eyes that it was restored in 1877. The appearance of the building is different from the gray and black solemnity of ordinary Gothic churches. The walls of the Frankfurt Cathedral are brick red, and the building lines are simple and smooth. The relatively complicated building is the towering tower. The tower was built in the 15th century and is 95 meters high. It can be seen at a glance from many places in the city, which is very eye-catching. There are 322 steps in the tower to the top of the tower. You can climb the tower for 3 euros and enjoy the city scenery of Frankfurt, but the space in the tower is narrow, so pay attention to safety when climbing. Inside the church The towering curved dome in the church is majestic, and the four huge base columns form a "crown" shape at the top. Although the huge glass windows have no gorgeous decoration, the good lighting makes the interior of the church more holy. bright. The central altar is quite eye-catching, the main altar was built in the 15th century, and the relief on it shows the scene of the crucifixion of Jesus. The painted reliefs on the north wing corridor of the remnants of the colored statues of the central altar money are also very special and worth seeing. The museum of the church displays the mass ritual items from the 14th century to the 20th century, including vestments, wine glasses, holy vessels, etc., which are worth viewing.

Famous Residences

"Goth spent his youth in Frankfurt. The markings on the front of the gate are the family's badge. There are three harps hidden in it, so it's also called Sanqin House. God's writing habits were different from those of the common man, who was used to writing standing up, and there was a desk in the room where he used to write."

Reasons to Recommend: The Goethe House is adjacent to the Goethe Museum. On August 28, 1749, the famous German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born here and spent his youth here. The famous "The Sorrows of Young Werther" and the prologue of "Faust" are completed here. Like the old German dwellings, the former residence is quite inconspicuous. During World War II, the building was almost completely destroyed by bombing. After the war, people faithfully restored the original appearance of the former residence. Precious furniture, authentic works of art, valuable ornaments, books, portraits, and manuscripts carefully moved elsewhere during the war were brought back after the war, and they are now sitting securely in the places that once belonged to them. Overview of the former residence The entrance to the former residence is at the black iron gate at the back door of the house. The Goethe House has four floors, with the hall, yellow room, blue room and kitchen on the first floor. Hangers, Frankfurt-style wooden cabinets and safes are placed in the hall, and a hidden door on the side leads to the underground wine cellar. In the yellow room (Yellowroom) on the left side of the hall, there is a collection of portraits of Goethe in his youth. The blue room was used as a dining room, decorated with a baroque round dining table, a mirror, and a sewing machine that Goethe's mother used to use by the window. The living room climbs up the luxuriously carved stairs to the second floor, where the living room and music room are mainly located. The living room is very spacious and decorated with luxurious and elegant red velvet. Goethe highly respects Chinese culture. The wallpaper in the living room is full of rich Chinese style, so the living room is also called "Peking" hall. It was here that Goethe chatted and laughed with writers, poets and dramatists from Germany and other European countries. The concert hall is also a frequent hangout for the music-loving Goethe family. An old clavichord is kept here, and the surrounding walls are decorated with portraits of members of the Goethe family. The room where Goethe was born The room where Goethe was born is located on the northeast side of the third floor. The newspaper by the window published the news of Goethe's baptism after birth, and the date of birth "August 28, 1749" marked by Goethe himself. In addition, a portrait of Goethe in his later years hangs in the room. The library and gallery on the third floor are also worth a visit, with a collection of 2,000 volumes. These books are well preserved, slightly yellowed, and have a sense of age. Goethe also likes to collect art collections very much. In the gallery on the third floor, you can see many masterpieces of German and Dutch schools. The study on the fourth floor of the former residence of the study houses the high-footed desk used by Goethe. Goethe wrote "Faust", "William Meister's Studying and Roaming Years" and a large number of poems in his narrow and simple studio. The room adjacent to the study houses the puppet theatre, which was featured in Goethe's "Wilhelm Meister's Studying and Wandering Years". On the north side of the fourth floor, there is an exhibition of the former residence of Goethe, where you can see the documents about the building, the customs of Frankfurt, manuscripts, notes, letters and other precious materials of Goethe when he lived in Frankfurt. After visiting the Goethe House, you can go to the Goethe Museum adjacent to it. The museum has a total of 14 exhibition halls displaying paintings from the Goethe era.

"The Frankfurt Old Opera is at the end of the luxury pedestrian street and is also an important attraction in Frankfurt. It used to be an opera house in history, and now it is a concert hall. The old opera house was completed in 1880. It was destroyed during World War II and was once known as the most beautiful ruin in Germany. After the war, the exterior was faithfully restored, and the interior was changed to a concert hall. The fountain at the entrance is easy to take pictures."

Reasons to Recommend: The Alte Oper is a classic opera house that can be found in downtown Frankfurt that dates back to Kaiser Wilhelm in the 1880s. This landmark building has seating that will fit 2,500 for performances, but is worth a visit even if you are not there to watch a show. In addition to operas, the Alte Oper contains several other facilities for small gatherings or other functions, making it a great gathering place for your groups. The facade, after impressive renovations following destruction during World War II, offers a fantastic photo opportunity and a wonderful place to marvel at European architectural grace.

"The gate of the old city hall opened in a very inconspicuous courtyard on the fork road, and there was only a self-service ticket vending machine. Ascended a circular staircase and came to the interior of the city hall. The walls on both sides are covered with portraits of successive kings."

Reasons to Recommend: This is one of the landmarks of Frankfurt.

"The Main Tower is one of the three tallest towers in Frankfurt's central business district. This is also a rare skyscraper in Germany. Whether it is on the river or on the edge of the city square, the buildings with some water chestnut concepts are very eye-catching as a landmark of the entire city. The building and the nearby European Central Bank also hook up the skyline of the core area of the financial center of continental Europe"

"Frankfurt is one of the few skyscrapers in Germany. There are three tall buildings gathered here (although they are not as tall as Shanghai. Guangzhou’s three towers) are still relatively tall. As a building similar to a triangular structure with a huge lightning rod, the head office of the second German bank looks unusually obvious and eye-catching. As a high-standard office building. In addition to providing office for some companies, it also comes with a great viewing platform to overlook the city from a height"

Reasons to Recommend: This is a landmark building in Frankfurt. It was built in the 1990s and is 260 meters high. It is also the tallest glass building in Frankfurt. The reinforced concrete frame plus the outer wall composed of aluminum alloy and glass curtain wall is a magnificent modern building with a view beautiful. The building also has a "green lung" function, with a unique vegetation garden. Commerzbank was founded in Hamburg in 1870 by a group of businessmen from Hamburg, and later moved to Berlin after merging with the Berliner Bank, and then to Frankfurt.

"The church building is on the side of the iron bridge. It looks a little very small and delicate against the background of the German International Bank Building and other buildings. There are no other two churches with tall spires. This building looks like a fairy tale world, but there will still be a certain number of believers coming closer to the feeling of living and community. feel"

"This is the oldest parish church in Munich. The interior is quieter and less gorgeous than other churches in the area. But there are also many beautiful artworks and altars. It was almost completely destroyed during World War II, and it took 50 years to rebuild. It is highly recommended that you take the time to climb the tower."

Reasons to Recommend: St Paul's Church was built in 1833 in a classicist style less common in Germany. It was originally a Protestant Lutheran church. On May 18, 1848, the first Frankfurt Congress was held here. The Congress reached a proposal to formulate a unified German constitution. During World War II, St. Paul's Church was destroyed, and due to the historical background behind it, it was rebuilt after the war. Churches have also been transformed from former religious buildings into cultural places. Now there are many commemorative reliefs displayed in the interior of the church, and the reliefs vividly reproduce the scene when the constitution was formulated. It is also worth mentioning that since 1949, the Goethe Prize, the German literary award (Thomas Mann was the recipient of the award in 1949), was issued every three years in the Paul Church.

"⛅, Yu Mengmeng’s Nicholas Church⛪ I like it very much...every time I see the statue of Jesus nailed on the cross✟, my heart is dull, and the scene is too sad to be seen. The church is a place I never tire of seeing, it is a place filled with too many stories and sustenance, the sacred and distant atmosphere surrounds the heart and the body is not loose or tight, not far or near, I can feel it and cannot touch it... Love it so much"

Reasons to Recommend: The St. Nicholas Church, built in 1260, is a typical late Gothic building. The red and white combination of the church looks very beautiful alone. Combined with the buildings next to it, it becomes a postcard of Frankfurt. The overall architectural style also has a strong German style, you can go in and visit.

Convenient and fast, you can also take long-distance trains to other cities. Railway stations in Europe are all open. There is no need to check the ticket or security check when entering the station.
