The Institute for Town History has the function of preserving, making accessible and comprehensively communicating Frankfurt am Main's historic heritage. Emanating from the former City Archives, the Institute is one of the leading archives in Germany with artefacts and records dating back to medieval times.
The Institute sees itself as a centre of living history appreciation. Competent discussion partners are available at all times for the historically interested - be they groups or individuals, scientists, students, journalists, teachers or pupils.
