Frankfurt "Old Town" Being Rebuilt

Before it was destroyed by Allied bombing in 1944, the Altstadt (Old Town) in the city of Frankfurt-am-Main was home to the largest collection of wood-frame buildings in Germany. A new, reconstructed "Old Town" has been built, with a grand opening scheduled for Sept 28-30, 2018.

The site contains 15 buildings constructed according to the original plans plus another 20 buildings (shops, restaurants, etc) in the appropriate style.

A guided tour in English can be booked at any Frankfurt Tourist Information Office for € 12.90 (about $15).
