In addition to the commerce and trade that can be found in this area, you can also experience rare history by visiting attractions such as the Romerberg, Dom, Alte Oper, Sachsenhausen, and the Pualskirche. Romerberg is considered the old city of Frankfurt, and it is home to many 14 th and 15 th century architectural designs and the Archaologische Garten. The Dom is also known as St. Baroholomeus' Cathedral, and it was constructed in the 14 th century as a Gothic style church.

The Alter Oper is a building created with Renaissance designs, and although the site is no longer used to host operas, there are still a number of concerts and events held there every year.
