Frankfurt Hindemith City Guide with Model Sheets of the Cowherd's Tower
What does the modern building "Die Welle" (The Wave) on Leerbachstrasse in Frankfurt have in common with the medieval Cowherds' Tower on Grosse Rittergasse in the district of Sachsenhausen? Primary school pupils will soon know the answer: both locations were at one time addresses of Paul Hindemith, who lived one third of his life in Frankfurt am Main.
The Frankfurt Hindemith-City Guide leads schoolchildren to six locations where Hindemith lived and worked. In addition, there are model sheets for constructing a scale model of the Cowherds' Tower. The city tour ends at the Cowherds' Tower and can be rounded off with a visit to the Hindemith Cabinet.
The Frankfurt Hindemith City Guide was created with the friendly support of the Frankfurter Bürgerstiftung.
