Bild des Veranstaltungsortes

In der Mainzer Altstadt, unweit des Rhein-Ufers lädt der Frankfurter Hof zu den verschiedensten Veranstaltungen ein. Namhafte Kabarettisten und bekannte Musiker geben sich hier ein Stelldichein. Schon seit längerer Zeit hat sich der Frankfurter Hof im kulturellen Bewusstsein der Mainzer Bürger etabliert.

Diese Location ist nicht nur Veranstaltungsort, sondern auch Zeitzeuge und wichtiger Bestandteil der deutschen Geschichte. Hier hat Lassalle Versammlungen vor der Gründung der Sozialdemokratie abgehalten, während der Revolution wurde der Hof zum Mittelpunkt der drei großen Volksbewegungen und während des zweiten Weltkriegs wurde der Saalbau zum Zufluchtsort jüdischer Bürger. Kein Wunder also, dass sich der Frankfurter Hof auch heute noch als Ort des demokratischen und weltoffenen Verständnisses sieht. Und dieser Vorsatz macht sich auch im hochwertigen Programm der Veranstalter bemerkbar. Künstler jeder Couleur treten hier auf, das Programm ist so bunt wie das Publikum. Erleben auch Sie unvergessliche Momente in wunderschönem und beeindruckendem Ambiente.

Hier können Sie sich aus dem Alltag entführen lassen und den international gefeierten Künstlern auf der Reise zu allen Kulturen der Welt folgen – es lohnt sich!
