Your private guide will tell tragic stories from the city's past, such as the Black Death pandemic that killed 2,000 Frankfurt citizens in only 72 days of the plague.
You will pass by St Paul’s Church and St Catherine's Church to see the David and Goliath Sculpture. Know the story of David’s victory over the already dead Goliath of the Bible.
Lastly, you will walk to the Eschenheim Tower, a city gate that was a part of the late-medieval fortifications of Frankfurt.
