There isn't a ton to see here, but what is available is truly remarkable, a chance to see the structure of a medieval Jewish ghetto. A must for history buffs.

I strongly recommend you visit the Judengasse whilst in Frankfurt. The ghetto here was the largest and earliest in Europe, with records going back to the 13th Century. It wasn't really marked in any significant way apart from a memorial to the destroyed Bornneplatz Synagogue-...More

This newly opened museum shows the history of Frankfurt's Jews who lived around 1200 to 1800 in the Ghetto on top of whose ruins it was built. Well conceived and executed.
