Staufermauer, Frankfurt

2.2
The Staufenmauer was an old city wall of Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

As part of the fortification of Frankfurt, it was built in 1180 under the Hohenstaufen rule to protect the city from attack and surround the present Altstadt. When the city was expanded in 1333, the old wall became a victim of efforts to reorganize the city defenses.

Today one can still see a small portion along the Fahrgasse, a part that was restored after the 18th century fire in the Jewish Ghetto.

  • This is an old section of the city walls, there is no information and you don't seem able to walk along it. Not much to see at all.  more »
  • This is the last remaining piece of Frankfurt's medieval walls. I think. There's a small plaque explaining this but not much more.  more »
