WE'RE RIGHT IN THE THICK OF IT ALL

Our location is simply unique: Hauptwache literally is the city's hub. Branching off from here are Zeil — pedestrian zone and shopping street — Liebfrauenstraße, Roßmarkt, Steinweg, Schillerstraße and Große Eschenheimer Straße. Here, Frankfurt's shopping quarter merges into the financial district, and the historic old town meets futuristic architecture. There are even plenty of things going on underground: below Hauptwache lies the famous shopping centre B-Ebene and one of the most important city train and metro junctions. 

LOCATION AND HOW TO FIND US

HAUPTWACHE — A PLACE STEEPED IN HISTORY

The baroque building that houses Café Hauptwache is a place that has repeatedly made history – in fact, it is such an important place that the square An der Hauptwache and the city train and metro junction Hauptwache were named after it. The former police building was built in the 18th century and, for a long time, it was also used as a prison. When the police was moved to a different location at the turn of the last century, the café opened. The building was destroyed in World War II and initially rebuilt in a simplified manner. In 1968 it was restored to its former glory after it had been dismantled during the construction work for the underground station.
