The Karmeliterkloster is free to visit and has some beautiful frescos from the 16th century, depicting the life of Jesus in the cloister and a fresco depicting the life of the Carmelita monks in the refrectory. For €2 you can hire a audio guide with extensive information about the artwork. There are also some modern art exhibits by local Frankfurt artists, too. This place is a small, hidden treasure and worth the visit.

This place offers peace and quiet one step away from downtown. It hosts the Historical Museum and sometimes exhibitions as well as live events.

All signs and explanations in German, no English guide book or handset. Nice staff at desk. Did not explain about putting very small back pack in cloak room for Archeology Museum. We were loudly and rudely spoken to in German pointing at back pack. We left. Waste of money. The museum looked very interesting but again no English. Most other places in Germany do have English even if just a small explanation.

We attempted to visit one day but realised "everything" is closed Ascension day. Tried again - outside looked identical to day it was closed but a door opened. We hadn't thought & 2 of us had frozen drinks. Woman looked at us and said nothing. No signs apparent as to where to go so we enquired. Man behind the desk just started in on you cant have drinks. Fair enough but he was so very rude.(especially after the woman had not indicated any problem) Sign out the front with an idea of entrance would be good. Sign inside again with entrance would also be good. Perhaps sign reminding forgetful tourists no food & drink also good. But my advice is avoid the place in case you have to speak to that dreadful man. No, we didn't bother going back in after we'd finished our drinks.

At the moment you can see a special exhibition what Frankfurt looked like in the fifties. The town was severely damaged. Only very few buildings were reconstructed. Many people in this town were fascinated by the "American way of life". This exhibition gives an impression how life was in the 50s.
It is a very impressive building, which was built as a monastery in the Middle ages and is now perfectl y restored.

This complex was once the Carmelite Monastery, dating from the 1300s. It was secularized in the early 1800s, but the very interesting mural paintings from 1514-21 survived. The entire complex was heavily damaged in World War II. It appears that most of the wall paintings survived, but there are no English explanations at all. The attendant turned on the lights in the refectory for us so that we could see the wall of paintings describing the turbulent history of the Carmelite order in Frankfurt. Possibly we should have asked him to explain what we were looking at. But he immediately went back to his desk and his reading. The cloisters have more wall paintings, depicting the life of Christ, by the same painter, Jorg Ratgeb. The rest of the complex, mostly of new construction, houses historical archives and contemporary art exhibits.
