Although many of the buildings are restored (because they were destroyed by the war) the restoration resembles how it was originally. Beautiful. The fountain in the middle is currently covered as it is under restoration. Must see!!
Its a nice city square and the buildings are impressive but its expensive to eat here in comparison to other parts of the city. Most of the terrace cafes will only seat you if you are eating which is a bit of a pain as...More
Frankfurt was unfortunately completely destroyed to the ground, hence all buildings are rebuilt and new. If you want to see town squares and old buildings, go to another German town or city. Better off visiting the museums in Frankfurt like MMK and the Städel.
I remember this from 30 years ago as an attractive medieval style square - I was a bit shocked to find it full of tacky food and drink stalls, a sort of seating area and buildings covered with scaffolding. You could not get a good...More

Hi Iitata, I found that tourist attraction places (like Heildberg) have souvenirs type places. In Frankfurt, I went to the main train station and they had a good general souvenir shop that sold beer steins (musical ones too) and general pens and key rings. Its not that easy to find general things unless its a market or a tourist place. I had trouble getting a beer stein as the locals don't seem to rate them. They are not cheap and mine cost nearly E38 but can go from E49 upwards for traditional looking ones. Have fun!!
