Stoltze Museum
"Un es will merr net in mein Kopp enei: Wie kann nor e Mensch net von Frankfort sei!“ ("It won’t go into my head how a person can’t be from Frankfurt!”) - these famous words were spoken by none other than Friedrich Stoltze, one of Frankfurt’s favourite sons. A brand-new museum dedicated to the popular satirist and dialect poet is open to visitors every day from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
