This quarter was recently reconstructed according to the original plans. The coronation route leads from Emperors’ Cathedral to Römer City Hall, bringing Frankfurt’s mediaeval history back to life.
The harmonious architectural blend of the new quarter calls to mind the moving history of Frankfurt. The old town’s archaeological gardens feature the remnants of a former Roman settlement and an imperial palace dating back to Carolingian times, explained by way of a special video animation. Last but not least, there’s the so-called Coronation Route, which follows the footsteps of former kings and emperors to the place of their crowning.
