Here you will also set eyes upon the famous medieval city hall: Romer. Catch your breath as you admire the 14th century St Bartholomew’s Cathedral, where Holy Roman Emperors used to be crowned King of Germany, and St Paul’s Church, known for becoming the first seat of Parliament. Continuing through the old quarter you also stumble upon Zeil Street, the amazing shopping haven, the Old Opera house, the towers of the original city wall and even one of Europe’s largest railway stations.
South of the Main River you can spot the Museum Embankment, thus named for the large concentration of museums that huddle on its banks.
