The history of the railway station district

– now a hip place to be –

It all started around the turn of the century with the opening of the main railway station in 1888. It rapidly grew in popularity until the twenties when it became the cultural centre of Frankfurt. Since then it has gone through many changes, not least in the last ten years. Now it has a thousand different faces. Together we will take a stroll through the entire history of the area with architectural highlights as well as discussing topics such as prostitution and drug use in Frankfurt.
