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.

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].

Not so easy to find it. It is a large museum, which reflects the history of Frankfurt and the long traditions of the Jewish community. There are some 12.000 jews from the city who were deported during the Nazi regime, and this is a remembering...More
