The Rothschild family home in Frankfurt became a tourist attraction in the 19th century.

The five Rothschild brothers set out from their Frankfurt home in the early 19th century.
From modest beginnings, the five brothers founded banking houses, in Frankfurt, London, Paris, Vienna and Naples. They achieved renown as the most important - and most successful - bankers in the world.

Rothschild ventures have become the stuff of legend: the funding of Wellington's armies, the Gold Rush, the Suez Canal, the arrival of the railways and the quest for oil.
