Westhafen, Museumufer, New Old Town, financial district

A tour for first-time visitors from Frankfurt and at the same time an introduction to the facets of modern architecture.

Tour start at the hotel, welcome and getting to know each other

The first destination is the Westhafen Frankfurt: a former port area, newly used for offices and luxurious apartments, which have a jetty in front of the door. The landmark is the 'Westhafentower' with its glass façade made up of triangles.
On the Museumsufer, the museums built in the 1980s provide an overview of the architectural trends of that time.
At the same time, there is a magnificent panorama of the high-rise buildings on the northern bank of the Main.
The tour continues on the Römerberg, the historical center of Frankfurt, which also offers a wide range of old and modern architecture. Among other things, you can see the town hall 'Der Römer', the exhibition hall Schirn, the Saalgasse with the town houses that were built in the 1980s and the 'new Frankfurt old town' that opened in 2018.
The walk ends on the MainTower viewing terrace. At a height of 200 m, in the midst of the skyscrapers of the banking center, there is a wonderful view of Frankfurt and its surroundings.
