Ernst May House


The Ernst May Society, founded in 2003 by architects and art historians states as a goal: "...the promotion of architecture, art and culture... in particular through the establishment and sponsorship of a model house with permanent and temporary exhibitions in a house in the Römerstadt settlement, which represents the ideas and works of the urban planner and architect Ernst May in a tangible way.”

After a long search, the lease for the single-family terraced house at Im Burgfeld 136 was signed with ABG Frankfurt Holding mbH in March 2005. The house was restored on a scientific basis as a monument and furnished largely true to the original. In October 2009, the work on the exterior was also completed.

The ernst-may-haus can be visited during the available times. Due to the close proximity to the property, the original furnishings allow direct insights into the style of the ‘New Objectivity’, not least due to the well-preserved, well-known Frankfurt kitchen. The visit also includes the may garden, which was designed in accordance with the concept of the landscape architect Leberecht Migge.
