Another historic structure that has survived WW II. Always admired it while driving around it for many years. As a tourist now is more impressive walking around it to visit friends in that neighborhood. Love seen it from apartment view at night!

With the hectic of the city, it is so easy to not even pay attention to the work of historical art. If you are in the area, this is worth a few minutes of your time to stop and marvel at how well it has...More

This was once one of the gates to the city and is all about the story of a man imprisoned in the tower who gained his freedom when he shot a 9 in the weather vane on top of the building.

Flemings Deluxe is a great hotel right across the street from Eschenheimer Tor. Just a block or so from the center and right next to an underground stop.
