brass ensemble playing the song hallelujah now for a little history of
Frankfurt historically Frankfurt was not famous for its modern skyline, but for
its historical city center it was one of the largest and most beautiful medieval
timber-framed old towns. During world war ii the city was bombed in an air raid in
2000 of the medieval buildings were destroyed
much of what you see today in the city center is new construction the dawn
Romer project is an effort to remake the old city center the altstadt of
Frankfurt into its pre-war architecture one of the buildings that survived World
War two is the old st. Nicholas Church or in German, “alte nikolaikirche” let’s
go inside this is a medieval church dating back to
the 13th century known for its harmonic 47 bells you can see the old and the new
buildings side-by-side stopping much of the newly renovated old town was
unveiled in 2018 let’s go check it out god this church is so beautiful church
this is called kaiser falls archeology museum when the bells are ringing sorry
it says here like many German cities Frankfurt was the target of the ology
teaser bombing in World War two on May 18th and 22nd the British Royal Air
Force carried out two of the wars most destructive air raids the cities more
than 2,000 half-timbered buildings only one remains intact one of the highlights
of the historical restoration project is the house of the seven skills or hospice
or golden vaanga to recreate this ornate medieval half-timbered house it took
meticulous attention to detail the details on this building on these
half-timbered houses do this when i zoom in look at all the gold statues bring a
little piece of Frankfurt at home puppet show all these old traditional
beer halls here so what I love about Frankfurt so far first of all it’s very
walkable the old town is extremely picturesque the airport is really nice
probably one of my favorites in the world one of the most organized airports
and everything here is just beautifully recreated it’s as if nothing happened
but the history is extraordinary and there’s so many museums to learn about
what happened really weird the first German Parliament was here so we’ve gone from the old town the new
town Frankfurt we found this beautiful peaceful park
Frankfurt would be an awesome place to work just say so our hostel is called
five elements it’s very close to the train station everything we saw was
walkable from the hostel and our hostel starts at 45 euros per night it into an
interesting section this is apparently the Turkish section so they have a lot
of doner kebab places a lot of curry Wurst and a lot of Indian food there are people from all over the world

Bolivia, but who would you go with well after going to Tunisia I think it’s
gonna help to be Arabic Star Wars or Star Trek? Star Wars! If you could live in any country in the world, where would it be? Spain in the morning we grab breakfast at our
