Mozart's stay in Frankfurt
10th - 31st August 1763 ● 28th September - 16th October 1790
The second journey at the end of life led Mozart on the occasion of the coronation of Leopold II to Frankfurt and was characterized by bitterness. He wrote to Konstanze, "If people could look into my heart, I would be ashamed, everything is cold, icy cold." The performance of the coronation concert KV. 537 in D major was artistically a success, financially not.
The city of Frankfurt is represented in the association by the Frankfurter Bürgerstiftung in Holzhausenschlösschen. The Frankfurter Bürgerstiftung was established on 15 February 1989. In addition to classical chamber concerts with renowned soloists and ensembles, the foundation also organizes lectures, readings, theater performances and numerous special projects. The annual program includes about 300 cultural events. An important pillar of the Foundation's program are also the regular children's events.

But the city in the heart of Germany and Europe can offer many other facets and contrasting variety. Near to the skyscrapers you can find cosy Ebbelwei pubs and at the heart of the bustling city centre you can find historical sights again and again.
Frankfurt is not just proud of its most famous son, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The Kaiserdom (Cathedral) and the Paulskirche, the cradle of German democracy, are also to be found here. Interesting destinations for excursions in and around Frankfurt turn your stay into a great experience and you will love to come back.
