Discover the history and stories of the Frankfurt mini-metropolis!


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 walking tour of the city. It is the very best way to discover the unique, and beautiful side of Frankfurt.

I will pick you up at the Airport and will be with you to cover Frankfurt's historical landmarks and talk about city's vibrant history of Banking, historical figures and much, much more.

Whether you are visiting on vacation, for business, or have a layover/stop-over at the airport, touring can make your visit memorable and enjoyable.
