The Frankfurter Goethe House
This is where Johann Wolfgang Goethe was born on the 28th of August 1749 "at midday, as the clock was striking twelve", and where he grew up with his sister Cornelia. Let us take you on a tour – floor by floor – of Goethe's family home. A short history of the house and its residents can be found in the exhibition on the third floor.
Former Frankfurt Opera House
Behind the historical facade of the former Frankfurt Opera House resides a concert hall whose importance far transcends the borders of Germany. It was inaugurated in 1880 but destroyed by bombs in 1944. It was rebuilt, slowly, in the 1970s, opening again in 1981. Frankfurt Opera is now in a modern building nearby, next door to Schauspiel Frankfurt (drama). Many important operas were performed for the first time in Frankfurt, including Carl Orff's Carmina Burana in 1937.
The Römer (German surname, "Roman") is a medieval building in the Altstadt of Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and one of the city's most important landmarks. The Römer is located opposite the Old St. Nicholas church and has been the city hall (Rathaus) of Frankfurt for over 600 years. The Römer merchant family sold it together with a second building, the Goldener Schwan (Golden Swan), to the city council on March 11, 1405 and it was converted for use as the city hall. The Haus Römer is actually the middle building of a set of three located in the Römerberg (a plaza).
