From half-timbered houses to skyscrapers // Free walking tour in Frankfurt
Hi! My name is Peniel, but you can also call me Penny :) So you're coming to Frankfurt? Welcome! I grew up in this city and I'm happy to show you all the wonderful things I love about it. After graduating from high school, I traveled the world for a year and discovered the concept of the walking tour. I think it's really cool and would love to host guests in my city and show them around. I'm a rather extroverted guy, very hospitable, welcoming and passionate. I've always been very interested in history, which is why I can provide a lot of facts about Frankfurt, Germany and Europe on the tour. However, as the son of refugees, I can also offer interesting insights and a different perspective into Germany's most diverse city. I look forward to your visit in Frankfurt, see you soon!
WELCOME TO FRANKFURT!
Frankfurt is a unique, complicated and often overlooked city and therefore it takes a powerful tour to truly understand the city.
On the guided visit we look up at modern skyscrapers and travel through time viewing the medieval old town. We talk about the different cultural influences that make our city so colorful and how they affect society.
We learn how Frankfurt connects and changes the world, from Germany's largest airport to the European Central Bank, but also how this city has always been a center for literature, from Goethe and the annual book fair to Frankfurt as the center of German hip-hop.
To get to know the real Frankfurt, however, one must also discuss Frankfurt's red light district and the train station district, which you may have already passed through when you arrived in the city.
All the main tourist destinations are visited on this tour, but also my personal insider tips that are often forgotten. These include, among others:
- The Old Opera
- The Goethe House
- The small market hall
- Paul's Church
- The old town including Römerberg and Kaiserdom
- The Iron Bridge
- Willy Brandt Square
- The station district
Thank you for your interest in my tour and I look forward to showing you around soon.
