Full description

Embark on an exclusive WWII-themed walking tour of Frankfurt Old Town. As an industrial capital of Nazi Germany, Frankfurt plays an important role in remembering the events of the Second World War. Discover the story of the intensive Allied bombings and the Battle of Frankfurt. Start with the iconic Frankfurt Cathedral, used by the Allied Air Forces as a reference point for the planes dropping the bombs on the city. The building also suffered severe damage, with the interiors burning out completely. Most of Frankfurt was devastated by the repeated bombardings by the Allies, with tens of thousands of explosives being dropped on the biggest medieval old town in Central Europe.

Today, you can admire the city’s amazing efforts to reconstruct the historic buildings to their former glory. You'll see reconstructed timber houses at the New Old Town and the Römerberg market square, with its 15th century Römer town hall, the Old St Nicholas Church, and the Fountain of Justice. Walk past the reconstructed St Paul’s Church, a memorial to German democracy, and the IG Farben Building. Throughout the tour, your guide will provide the most informative commentary on Frankfurt’s important WWII events, places, and people, such as the Adlerwerke "Katzbach" concentration camp.
