Half-timbered houses and romantic streets

In Frankfurt’s old town (Altstadt), you’ll find Römerberg. This square is surrounded by half-timbered houses, the town hall and Old St Nicholas Church. The romantic streets of the Sachsenhausen district are a pleasure to walk along. This is also where you’ll find the best Apfelwein, a cider produced in the Frankfurt region.

Connected by 19 bridges

Frankfurt is also called ‘Mainhattan’, as the city is famous for being Germany’s finance centre. The Main River is an important lifeline for Frankfurt and divides the city into two. Both sides of the city are connected to each other by no fewer than 19 bridges. Furthermore, it’s a wonderful place for walking. If you continue along the river banks, you’ll reach the Museumsufer which has some of the city’s best museums, such as the Städel Museum and the German film museum. You can take a rest in the Palmengarten, a huge botanical garden teeming with exotic plants.
