Frankfurt has announced the completion of its major architectural development close to the famous Römer square after years of reconstruction, reclaiming an important part of its urban history, which had been destroyed by air raid during World War II.
Spread out over 7,000 square metres, the “new old town” features some 15 historical townhouses that have been rebuilt in its typical style, while 20 new buildings have been erected in the DomRömer Quarter. The new district promises to be a lively meeting place, with an interesting mix of shops, restaurants, museums and residential flats.
In former times, Frankfurt was known for its beautiful medieval timber-framed old town, and widely regarded as one of Germany’s largest and most celebrated city centres. With its reconstruction finally completed, preparations are underway for its official inauguration in a major festive ceremony to be held next September, promising a booming season for tourism.
Frankfurt also ranks as the second most frequented German destination by GCC tourists after Munich and counted 211,720 overnight stays from Gulf nationals in 2017. Frankfurt’s cosmopolitan atmosphere offers a wide range of touristic attractions rarely to be found together in any other German city. The city centre bustles with premium hotels, renowned restaurants and great shopping facilities such as the Goethestrasse, where most luxury brands can be found. Tourists find several points of attractions along the river Main, suitable for individual holiday-makers and families. In addition to a vast range of cafes and trendy pop up beach clubs to enjoy lounging at, cruise trips along the river depart from nearby “Eiserner Steg Bridge” and offer a different experience of the city in a charming and romantic setting.
Travellers seeking a luxurious and exceptional experience can enjoy custom-tailored VIP services from the moment they land at Frankfurt airport.
