About this Tour


The tour starts at the fountain of justice in front of the Frankfurter Römer. We walk the historic coronation path and enter the New Old Town. At the Hühnermarkt we see the typical architecture of the old Frankfurt and visit the famous Struwwelpeter Museum.

From there, we walk through the House of the Golden Lampkin towards the Braubachstraße. We close the tour with two true highlights. The archaeological garden shows Frankfurt’s historic ruins and the House of the Golden Scales is the most stunning rebuilding in the entire New Old Town.
