Dogs visit Frankfurt’s new old town. It took years of construction to more or less rebuild the ancient heart of the city between Römer City Hall and the Cathedral that was destroyed in WWII. Although not completely finished yet, it is now open for the public (and dogs). The shops and cafes still have to move in. In September there will be a huge 3 day celebration to welcome the old town into the city.
