With your VR headset, enjoy a 360° panoramic view of medieval half-timbered buildings and sublime Wilhelminian-style architecture.

What people are saying about Frankfurt

Very, very cool! I'm female, mid-twenties, and absolutely enjoyed the VR journey into Frankfurt's past. All employees are also extremely friendly. One might wonder if €18 is justified, or if this experience should be offered for less than €15. On Get Your Guide it says the duration is 45-60 min. In truth, it was about 40 minutes, of which about 25 minutes was the journey by VR. The rest of the time was spent in two rooms, where information about Frankfurt's past was given; mostly by a very friendly employee. The other part was narrated by video projection onto a large "book".

The tour was great! The introduction is still without VR and is made very sympathetic. The carriage ride through the city is with VR glasses. The graphics and sound are very well done, you can look and listen in all directions. Very immersive experience. Definitely recommended. I will certainly book again in the other cities that also offer it.

It was an amazing experience! Also the stuff very friendly (I arrived half hour earlier and they let me through) it was an excellent experience overall. I recommend

We had so much fun! It was interesting and relaxing. The staff was great and so helpful.

We did the experience in English, and it was great! Good value for the money
