Full description

Experience the true horror stories of Frankfurt on a guided walking tour of the city. You will see iconic places like the Frankfurt Cathedral, Römer city hall, Old St Nicholas Church, and other monuments of the old town of Frankfurt.

Start your tour at Iron Footbridge, known for its marvelous city views and padlocks attached by romantic couples. You will stroll along the iconic Mainkai riverside road towards the Frankfurt Cathedral. Admire the beauty of the soaring Gothic structure accompanied by the scary, dark stories.

Next, you will follow the so-called Coronation route, the footsteps of former kings and emperors from the place of their crowning at the cathedral, to see the harmonious architecture of the New Old Town.

Walkthrough the narrow alleys to hear more stories about ghosts and other hunting mischiefs. You will reach the Römerberg town square, to see the Fountain of Justice, medieval Römer city hall, the Gothic-style Old St Nicholas Church, and other monuments.

Your private guide will tell tragic stories from the city's past, such as the Black Death pandemic that killed 2,000 Frankfurt citizens in only 72 days of the plague.

You will pass by St Paul’s Church and St Catherine's Church to see the David and Goliath Sculpture. Know the story of David’s victory over the already dead Goliath of the Bible.

Lastly, you will walk to the Eschenheim Tower, a city gate that was a part of the late-medieval fortifications of Frankfurt.

Throughout the tour, hear about the myths, legends, and folklore from the German Middle Ages.
