While many European cities have rebuilt buildings destroyed during World War I and World War II , only Frankfurt decided to turn back time on an entire district. Scheduled for completion in 2018, Frankfurt’s “new” old town, the DomRömer Quarter, revitalizes a 75,000-square-foot area that was more than 90 percent destroyed between Cathedral Square and the Römer (a building dating to the Middle Ages). Already home to some 200 of the city’s residents, the old town development project has 20 new buildings and 15 replicas—among them Stadthaus, a brand-new community and conference center—integrated with shops, cafés, museums and plazas. Learn about the project and hear some of the history behind the reconstructed buildings during this two-hour walk offered by Frankfurt’s tourism office.

The city stopped offering the 2-hour tour of Frankfurt mentioned in the article in 2016. In Jan. 2017 they changed it and it is now only 1 hour. 

For a really good tour of the city, may I suggest a walking tour with Frankfurt on Foot instead? 3.5-4 hours long for 12-14 €, it is a bargain. We are #1 on Trip Advisor for a reason. All of our guides are native English speakers and we will show you the best of what this city has to offer. Thanks!
