Frankfurt, is a beautiful and very lively town with cold weather something that doesn’t seem to intimidate its visitors! Crowded colourful squares, music and beer, are only a few of the elements that make Frankfurt a special travel detsination in Europe!
Frankfurt is usually a transit destination, due to the large centrally located airport and the many flights that it serves, so most travelers usually are passing through for a day or even for some hours, like us! We ve prepared below the 9 + 1 things to do in Frankfurt for both transit and regural travellers!
9 + 1 things to do in Frankfurt
1. Sunset by the Maïn river. The colors that water gets during sunset hours is a piece of art. Nice view point can be found on the “iron bridge” Eiserner Steg.
2. The skyline, and the contrast of the old city comparing to the “new” one. As you walk in “new-old city ‘, as the locals call it, or Romer Platz, you can see beautiful views as skyscrapers or Gothic Cathedrals like the one of St. Bartholomew (it was built in the seventh century).
3. The view of the city from above is something magical! There are many places where you can enjoy it, e.g. If you are a sportsman you can climb the stairs to the platform around 250 of the Cathedral and get a little taste, another option is from the “Main Tower” which has a height of 200 meters, 56 floors and fortunately, theres a lift that can take you around to a full city view. It is a must!
4. We love that you can walk around with a bottle of beer everywhere in the streets and there no one to tell you anyhting about it. You see people who just left work to sit by the subway with a can of beer.
5. You find people from all over the world. It is generally a multicultural city that makes the atmosphere even more beautiful.
6. Yu can find bread, sausages k beer everywhere!
7. Good coffee and cakes can be found in an extremely a small patisseri in the old town, next to an antique shop, called am Naschmarkt Dom!
8. A visit must be done at the city’s Garden, Palmengarten which has all kinds of plants and spots for some extra relaxation.
9. It’s perfect that you can move around comfortably by bicycle.
10. For a taste of local dishes worth a visit the kleinmarkthalle, is a covered market where you can find almost everything. The most famous stand is the one with the 2 ladies who serve the best sausages for about 40 years now.
Unfortunately we had only one day at our disposal to explore Frankfurt, so we limited ourselves to a very central parts of the city! But fortunately we have now made new travel friends like Louisa Abraham who studies in Frankfurt and helped us with the above tips! Thank you very much and happy travels!!!
