After we turn right, the next adjacent street on the right is Kaiserstraße. Kaiserstraße is one of the most famous inner city streets in Frankfurt and, with its splendidly decorated façades adorning its Wilhelminian style buildings, it is the representative connection between the city centre and the city’s “Hauptbahnhof” or central station. Kaiserstraße became famous after the Second World War as a synonym for Frankfurt's red light district, even though it no longer forms part of the red light milieu itself. Today, Kaiserstraße is home to numerous bars, cabarets, shops and offices, which give the street a certain multicultural ambience.

Hauptbahnhof Frankfurt (Frankfurt Central Station)

The city’s central station was opened in 1888. Today, it is one of the largest stations in Germany
, with around 1,800 trains stopping here on weekdays. Today, the station has 25 tracks in five platform halls. 4 S-Bahn tracks and 4 U-Bahn tracks are located 17 metres underground.

The station was built by the company Holzmann. In 1924, the building was extended by two outer halls. A total of 3 halls were needed, because there were 3 railway companies: Taunusbahn, Preußische Staatsbahn and Hessische Ludwigsbahn. Taunusbahn was the first railway company in Frankfurt.
1839 the line to Wiesbaden was opened. In Mainz-Kastel, there was a connection to the shipping traffic.

The façade of the station is made of sandstone. To the left and right of the clock at the main entrance, day and night are represented artistically,
and in the middle of the roof there is a sculpture of Atlas, who carries the globe on his shoulders. At his side, there are the symbolic figures of steam and electricity. This 6.30 m-tall group of figures is intended to emphasise the special significance of the station.
