Cityguide Frankfurt am Main

More than a city of banks

Unfortunately there is not enough space here, so here are the most important tips for you visit of the beautiful city on the Main!

Staying overnight in Frankfurt am Main!

As a financial center, trade fair city and tourist magnet, Frankfurt is of course packed with accommodation. Each district in the center of Frankfurt offers several options. You are spoiled for choice. Well located and cheap you can stay in the Frankfurt Hostel at the main station, just a few minutes from the bus stop. Although the evening street audience on the Kaiserstraße takes strangers some time to get used to (light girls and heavy boys), you spend the night in a magnificent old building and fun backpacker society from just 17 €.

Sightseeing in Frankfurt am Main!

A classic tour can start with a walk along the river Main and over the Eiserne Steg with side trips to the cathedral, the Frankfurter Römer and Paulskirche. These goals can be reached on your arrival by long-distance bus at the main station with the S-Bahn direction City quite fast. If you also want to look around Frankfurt's known financial district and downtown, the best way is to go from the Zeil shopping street over the Fressgass to the beautiful building of the Alte Oper.

From the observation deck of the Maintower you have a great overview of the city. If you are more of an animal and nature lover, you should definitely visit the Frankfurt Zoo and the Palmengarten. You can also walk to the Westend Campus of the Goethe University Frankfurt from the Palmengarten in a few minutes. There is plenty of green space here, for example for a game of Frisbee or football with friends.

Eating in Frankfurt am Main!

Frankfurt also has a lot to offer in culinary terms. A coffee break is best enjoyed in the Café Süden on the hip Berger Straße, in the garden of the Café Albatros on the gravel road in student Bockenheim or around the Schweizer Platz in Sachsenhausen. From there you come directly to the southern bank of the river Main (dribbdebach). There you can find the famous doner boat and other river gastronomies. One floor up you will also find the beautiful Museumsufer, where there is a large flea market every second Saturday of the month.

You will experience the culinary diversity of the big city every day in the Kleinmarkthalle in Hasengasse 5-7, where traders from all over the world offeir their fresh goods. On the other hand, it's even more contemplative in the Caféhaus Siesmayer directly on the Palmengarten.

Celebrating in Frankfurt am Main!

In the evening you can drink cocktails and other drinks in the Bockenheimer Weinkontor (cozy), in the good mare in the Gallus (slightly off) or in the 22nd (over the roofs of the city). You can dance very well in Offenbach: The Robert Johnson is known far beyond the borders of the city. You prefer more alternative sounds or concerts? Go to the legendary Batschkapp or to the Clubkeller in Sachsenhausen! Most tourists, however, go to Alt-Sachsenhausen. Here you will find many Äppelwoi bars. In the narrow streets with cobblestones (Große and Kleine Rittergasse, Paradies- and Klappergasse) there are also various bachelor parties throughout the year.
