6:31 am
many high rises can only be mind has an alias bank for it that is frankfurt. it's a classic among germany's city trips frankfurt with its exciting contrasts from the skyline to the old town and from the tavern culture around the site are called void that i'm eager to try to the nightlife in the station district well and because it's summer i'll also be on the water. course we also make a detour to the city's famous art museum there's. our globe trotter takes us to greenland from the capital nuke to the endless ice. and this week's deer video shows a pressure off and adventurous journey through it was biggest time.
6:32 am
high finance high rises and high rent frankfurt center was almost destroyed in world war 2 it cleared space for a new buildings i'd like to get a bird's eye view of it all the mine tell us has an observation deck in 30 seconds if you assent 200 meters in good weather it's worth seeing the view of the city and the region has brought other travelers out here to become from all over. what are you from. paris where you're from the netherlands but what's so special about the city while i call it buildings it's kind of like new york and also i'm like i like the part of the city that she took to the architectural the contrast of all the nina that's really nice it's beautiful it's a. way it sounds contradictory but it's a fact in frankfurt there is
6:33 am
a new old town and attempt to heal the wounds of war destruction and half the reconstruction they want to teresa wrecked a part of the medic you both city and that you all tell opened in 2018. germany's financial hub has rebuilt history in the heart of its old town. the area was almost totally destroyed by arrowheads in march 1904 now it's been resurrected as a testament to frank for its medieval past. architect and urban planning. has reconstructed the most donate of the old buildings the golden scale was once owned by the dutch spice merchant out confection a home fun humble. yacht by their golden bargain
6:34 am
for the golden scale and partly for other buildings as well we were lucky enough to have a great number of original elements that had survived the war. and we managed to persuade the owner of large parts of the golden scales façade to donate the stones to us he had them stored in his library building. fund kamel family papers reveal details like the existence of a gilded waterspout shaped like a dragon. a total of 15 buildings have been reconstructed 20 more are entirely new the built in medieval style some people criticize the project at 1st but today the new old town is a thing of beauty from aston i'd finished my 1st impression is that it's beautiful it's aesthetically pleasing i can't say that about it it decorative facades came out very well i don't know how much money went into it that that raises the question of whether it was the right investment to make investments. in this i
6:35 am
think it still looks very lifeless but can i say that the human element is still missing somehow i just come to maybe that will come when the right shops move and some shops have already opened like this wine bottle. businesses with a regional connection get preferential treatment when trying to sign leases in the new town this bottle shop has been well received. and with lower this is what this is this area feels a little like a village. the dress shop owners all know each other in time. besides the shops over 200 rental apartments have been built the new old town doesn't it still seem a bit sterile as though it's waiting for the people of frankfort to fill it with life. says it was well worth it. only because we have this back and people here remember what was they can see that this was their past so now they can
6:36 am
also ask themselves about the future. right next to the new old town is the back and the old town hall this was also destroyed in the war and rebuild in the 1950 s. many of frankfurt's buildings have had a checkered history they aren't what they were originally meant to be st paul's church for instance is no longer a church it was the 1st structure to be rebuilt after the war this is where the 1st pan german national assembly met after the revolutions of 848 a 1st step on the long road to democracy in germany was going to want to get a visitor learn here. the mural was only put up in 1901 it's by your highness cuts go and shows the procession of the deputies to st paul's church. i would do the biggest gentleman by solemn expressions are supposed to be the deputies there were
6:37 am
about $200.00 nuns and then you have scenes from daily life scattered throughout and references to history as well of course it's a bit ambiguous on the one hand it's called the procession of the deputies to st paul's church but it comes across a bit like a funeral procession and of course that alludes to the fact that the paul's church parliament failed the parliament. the 3rd and it's one of the birthplaces of democracy but aside from the painting everything's a plane and so why is that one doesn't government. that's because the church was entirely destroyed in world war 2 with it are now all but the outside walls they were left standing but the whole interior everything inside burnt all that remained was this giant round room there after the war they rebuilt st paul's church for the centennial in 1988 but in a very austere a contemporary style. for
6:38 am
. a group through our north now we're coming up from the lower darkness into the bright open space that symbolizes the new democratic beginning. then there will be more begin the more you get and. the interior was left purposely austere the seating plane. and the floor just sandstone or. the only part that's a bit fancier is the speaker's podium and the rostrum behind it over with and what is this hall used for today is the home you're going to have it poured out today it's used for special events in fact it's one of germany's most significant event locations every year here for example the peace prize that the german book trade has been awarded since 1950 the got a prize one of the highest honors of the city of frankfurt is also awarded here plus major anniversary observances are held here it's a. used for a great many thanks to most lists or to
6:39 am
the next point of interest i'm heading for of to is the river of mine the who would buy and brooch from here he can see another of the city's highlights the arts institute frank for it as a business and banking city also has a lot of art and culture to offer pretty concentrated on the banks of the mine there for of the name museums for or the museum embankment and right now we introduce your to the show deeded probably the most important is the i'm here in frankfurt frank church data museum is famous for its historical masterpieces we see foreign heroes. mismatched couples. famous men. fascinating women. in painting after painting.
6:40 am
staton with the owners are just there the museum was founded an 815 it's the oldest civic museum in germany there in 7000 square meters of space we display some 1000 works of art from 7 centuries so it's a comprehensive overview of art from the middle ages to the present. those who don't have an opportunity to visit frankfurt can take the museums virtual tour it allows you to peruse 56 outstanding works of art at the click of a mouse from the comfort of home taking you on a journey through the centuries deep into the realms of cultural history. is for your mention museum is for people bifocals but also i think it's especially valuable to gather together very different people from so many centuries. the state of director philip demand has selected exemplary works and supplemented them with background stories and notes. for example how can we
6:41 am
tell that a famous portrait of gutta was left unfinished for a time and only completed later. on go to his face and go to in the campania is world famous of course but if you look down a little you'll see that one leg is long by the may other and he's got 2 left feet wide so something clearly went wrong with his picture. and this painting by manet bears a hidden message that even touched off a scandal among his 19th century contemporaries. often there also because such 1st glance it's a familiar dining table seen in reality this is a portrait of his lover together with her illegitimate son and of course that didn't sit well with the ideals of respectable society at the time around $870.00. at the moment passion to twist all of us out in the top at that moment created a straightforward scene of jealousy of 2 men and one woman you can see it quite
6:42 am
clearly you get straight to the point one is all green the other all yellow and she's in the middle of red is a beat it's quite a scene. from still museum lights taking its treasures off their pedestals so they can be understood not just mind through the stories behind the pictures. once a year frankfurt pays tribute to its many museums with a big bash on the banks of the river mine the institutions that take part include the city's film museum and it's coming acacia museum. since it was 1st held in 1908 the festival's drawn into the biggest in the region now some 3000000 people come to the end you will museum some for fest and there is plenty to keep them busy.

6:52 am
apples and it's called in the local dialect added voice or simply apple wine. it's poured from a special jar called a bend it into a particularly kind of cut glass. why the last on the glass if. it's called that because of the laws and shapes the people of frankfurt have their own dialect and they just call them ribs would be. used to be a lot cloudier so these ribs are there firstly to give the impression that it's much clearer than it is. in the pubs didn't used to serve anything to eat or so people brought their own forced. greasy finger has it's easier to hold on to a class like this than one that's totally smooth so form follows function they may not have known it at the time but they did it anyway here's.
