A unique experience through history of the hews of the Hesse area. Check out the current special exhibition. The building is on the side of the Rhein and a walk there is a must.

At present the place is under heavy construction, however there is great idea on the wooden wall surrounding the works: it's a comic, which is dealing with the story or the construction works.

I had to chance to visit this museum during the "Nacht Museen". It was really close to Mainkai and other museums. And in my point of view, it's definitely the best place to get to know the history of European Jews.

The museum presents a very interesting display of a gone world. Nearby is the old Jewish cemetery and the impressive holocaust memorial [incl. Anne Franck's stone].

A wonderful opportunity to see and know the Jewish history of Europe, especially Germany keeping aside all myths and prejudices we acquired from Hollywood brainwashing stories.

Frankfurt has an enormous wealth of Jewish history, our association with the Rothschild and Bethmann families has left a rich legacy. So too the not so palatable Holocaust memories, yet Frankfurt is not shy at working hard to provide fitting tributes and memorials to the...More
