Custom-made private Frankfurt walking tour, departing from your hotel

Frankfurt is rich in historical tradition. In the 13th century the Kaiser bestowed on Frankfurt the privilege of holding an autumn fair each year on the Romerberg (Old town centre). Today, the Kaiserdom (Emperor's Cathedral) and Paulskirche (St. Paul's Church), located in the busy metropolis on the banks of the River Main, invite visitors to experience the transition from empire to German nation-state. The National Assembly held in 1848 introduced democracy to Germany.

Join me on a greatly informative but also fun, easy-going and often tongue-in-cheek commentary on historic and contemporary topics. It is the very best way to discover the unique, and beautiful side of Frankfurt but most of all experience "The life of others" in Frankfurt.

Best value for money: I will pick you up from your hotel and will be with you for 3 hours, which is enough to cover Frankfurt's historical landmarks and talk about city's vibrant history of Banking, historical figures and much, much more.


Sights in Frankfurt:
- Römerberg (Centre of the old town), Cathedral
- St. Paul's Church (from the outside)
- Goethe-House (from the outside)
- Hauptwache (Historic Guard Station)
- Palais Thurn und Taxis
- Frankfurt Stock Exchange (from the outside)

A Recent Review of this tour

Stan was a great experience. He was patient, kind and attention to detail was amazing. Stan spent more time with us than originally planned because the cathedral was having a service and he had to change plans. Nothing seemed to rattle Stan and his food recommendations were perfect.
