Abstract

This paper will give a short account of the life of Karl Schwarzschild and his relation to Frankfurt. Focus will be on the early papers he published, while he was still at school. And his last papers, that made him famous in the community of astrophysicists focusing on black holes will be mentioned in biographical context as well.
