The Wetterau was one of the most strategic locations in Europe. It was here that the trade from the East on Via Regia met the Rhenish trade from the west. It’s where the goods of the northern Saxons started their journey on the Main to the Danube.
At the center was the Free and Imperial City of Frankfurt, the jewel of the Holy Roman Empire. To defend the heartland of the Empire, the medieval Emperors assumed direct control of the region. It is their legacy that shapes the character of the historical heritage in the Wetterau.
