Frankfurt, home of the European Central Bank, banking capital of Germany, insurance capital of Germany, home of the DAX, HQ of Lufthansa, is an amazing mixture of new and old, stone and water, luxury fashion and farmers markets. Here you can stand at a table drinking a glass of wine next to broker, walk 5 minutes and watch spotted woodpeckers chipping away at a tree.

The old city centre was totally destroyed during the 2nd WW, but in 2018 the rebuilt area was opened to the public. Using traditional stone masonry, iron-work and wood-work, very traditional old-style houses sit next to more modern versions. This gives a very interesting mixture of styles. The old Roman Villa archaeological site that used to be open to the elements was also extended and sits under the new town hall. It is protected, but open to the air, and beautifully laid out. Entry is free and is barrier free.
There is a very detailed report in German on the entire project
here. Little can be found in English unfortunately. The entire project cost over EUR 200 million, instead of the budgeted EUR 79 million.
