Zeil Street

A commercial artery of Frankfurt.

Zeil Street is the large avenue that runs through the city centre which joins the two squares of 'Hauptwache' and 'Konstablerwache'. This street and its surrounding buildings were built during the 19th century. Unfortunately, this place was reduced to ruins due to the Second World War and the famous bombings that destroyed the city. But it wasn't rebuilt in this case because now it's the main shopping street in the city. Throughout this walk (as this is a pedestrian street), you'll find all kinds of shops and in the middle of this golden mile of shopping, you'll see the Zeilgalerie shopping centre, which is one of the main shopping areas in Frankfurt. You'll also find another big shopping centre in Hauptwache Square. This lively avenue has a busy atmosphere during the whole day, but it's during the weekends when this street is absolutely teeming full of people.
