The modern coexists with the old

The modern coexists with the old in perfect harmony in this city of Frankfurt. In the "Zeil" (shopping area) not to far from the "Altstadt" (old city) a new building of futuristic design emerged since last year, it is striking to look at it, a hole in the middle of the building... quite impressive.

The Altstadt continues to be as in the past attractive with many of Frankfurt's most important sights, including the Römerberg plaza with the famed Römer city hall and many other middle-age style buildings. Nearby is the Frankfurter Dom of St. Bartholomäus and the Paulskirche, the short-lived seat of the German National Assembly in 1848-49.
