"Site of the new European Central Bank headquarters" Germany Off The Beaten Path Tip by Nemorino
Germany Off The Beaten Path: 468 reviews and 716 photos
This is the former Großmarkthalle (wholesale produce market) on the site of the future headquarters of the European Central Bank (ECB). I took this photo in 2004.
They are planning a large complex of buildings, including three skyscrapers. The main market building, a huge historic building from the year 1928, will be preserved, renovated and incorporated into the new complex. Construction began in 2005 and the bank originally planned to move in to the new complex in 2009, but after various delays it has now finally opened.
The ECB was previously operating from rented offices in several buildings in downtown Frankfurt, particularly the Eurotower on Willy-Brandt-Platz, opposite the Frankfurt Opera.
