This is the church of St Nicholas in the main square in Frankfurt, which stands here since the middle of the 15th century. During the bombings of the second World War, luckily the church only suffered minimal damage, and it is still used as a working church for the Lutheran congregation in Frankfurt.
Right across the road from the St Nicholas church is this building, one of the original frame houses that also survived the bombings of World War 11. We went on a walking tour of Frankfurt a few days after Christmas with a great company called Frankfurt on Foot, and our guide told us that an elderly man lives on the top floor of this building, and he was born in this building 95 years ago – imagine what he has seen from his window!
