Hi guys,

We are organising another cultural event for February. The Institute for the History of Frankfurt is one of the most important municipal archives in Germany and among Frankfurt’s oldest cultural institutions: Its historical memories go back to the year Protected content .

As some of you may remember, we organised a get together during the Bahnhofviertelnacht this past summer. The Institution is hosting an exhibition titled "Bankers, brothels & bohemians: The history of the Bahnhof's district". The description of the event on the website is: "The quarter developed between the old town and the central station, which was opened in Protected content , changed radically in the last Protected content from the sophisticated hotel, entertainment and shopping district to one of the three global fur trading centers and soon to the heart of the Frankfurt red light district. Meanwhile, the signs for the multicultural Bahnhofsviertel point towards gentrification - despite the drug scene and crime."

It will be nice to visit this exhibition, learn more about the Bahnhofsviertel and then have some drinks (if people are up for it) afterwards. It will take approximately 60 minutes to visit this exhibition.

Let me know if this is of interest.
