Hello,

my name is Frank. I have been living in Frankfurt for over twenty years. I like this city and would like to tell you what's really going on here. And I would like to show you several „jewels" in the Taunus mountains, about ten miles from Frankfurt.

I studied political science, history and economics at Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. Besides working as a guide, I also work as a freelancer for publishing houses, as a private tutor and as an interviewer.

Tours offered:

Tour 1: Walking through parts of Frankfurt tourists often do not see (SPECIAL Price: 8 Euro, for students 5)
The tour starts at the fountain in front of Alte Oper (U6/7 or S-Bahn station Taunusanlage). We will walk through the financial district, cross a central place, walk along the river Main, have a look at a not-so-old yacht harbour, stand at the foot of a power plant, take a look at a large railway bridge, watch the skyline from the west, go through a Mediterranean district and end our tour in a totally new quarter with a large shopping mall.

The tour starts at 11 a.m. at the fountain in front of Alte Oper (U6/U7) and ends at about 1 p.m. at the Skyline Plaza shopping mall (15 minutes from the central train station).
Minimum participants: 5 persons. SPECIAL Price: 8 / 5 Euro (students). If you want to join, please email me not later than 9 p.m. the day before. The tour can also be arranged for a different time.

Tour 4: The history of Frankfurt in the context of German history (90 minutes, 15/10 euro)

You'll learn about:

Frankfurt - a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, where the German kings have been elected and later also coronated.

Frankfurt - a city of trade, banking, books and also industry, of the bourgeois middle classes, not of kings, princes or dukes.

The relationship between liberal-bourgeois Frankfurt and the monarchical, increasingly nationalistic German Empire under Wilhelm I. and II. (1871-1918). Reformist Frankfurt during the Weimar Republic (1919-1930).

Frankfurt in the Nazi era (1933-1945): It's liberal institutions were destroyed and communists and left-wing people persecuted. The nearly 30.000 Jews were excluded from social life, their synagogues etc. destroyed. About 12.000 Jews were murdered during the Holocaust.

Frankfurt as West Germany's financial center (from 1945 till today). The student movement. The terrorist RAF (Red-Army-Faction). The Green party.

Frankfurt today: The financial sector, the airport and high immigration determine Frankfurt's development as a (multicultural) business metropolis, as Germany's most "Americanized" city. Capitalism with a human face?

The tour starts at 11 a.m. at the "Fountain of Justice" on the Römerberg and ends at 1 p.m. in the Westend district near Palmengarten (not far from U 6/7 Westend station).
Minimum participants: 4 persons. Price: 15 / 10 Euro (students). Plus (if you do not have a day card etc.) ticket (approx. 2,80 Euro) for one U- or S-Bahn ride.
If you want to join, please email me not later than 9 p.m. the day before. The tour can also be arranged for a different time.

reading tip: Melican, Brian: Frankfurt.
" (...) The city's role in the global financial markets often obscures its importance as a historical and cultural centre, not just for Germany, but for Europe and the West as a whole. In the Middle Ages, Frankfurt was the city in which the Holy Roman Emperors were crowned and in which, at the dawn of the Renaissance, a tradition of printing and publishing was established which lives on in today's Frankfurt Book Fair. The German language's most enduring author, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, was born in the city, and the university named for him gave birth to one of the twentieth century's most revolutionary academic developments, the Frankfurt School. Architecturally, too, the city has always been a pioneer: its famous skyline is only the latest and most visible in a series of bold experiments. Frankfurt has always been a capital without a country: the capital of the book trade, the capital of modern social studies, the capital of the Eurozone. Today, it rivals Brussels, Berlin, Paris, and London, and yet retains a deeply provincial, down-to-earth identity interwoven with the thick forests and farming country of its Hessian hinterland..."
