HIGHLIGHTS

 

Römerberg

Central square of the medieval quarter of the city. This place is surrounded by the City Hall houses, one of the main points of attractions of the city.

Built where the old Roman city used to stand, the square has a fountain at its center, topped by a statue. This main square of the city serves as a stage for numerous events like the traditional Christmas market, fairs or diverse outdoors shows.

St Bartholomaus Cathedral

This Gothic-style building was a relevant site in the history of Germany, it has nonetheless been the symbol of national unity in Germany during the nineteenth century.

Rebuilt in 1867 after a fire, the Cathedral contains remains of the ancient Gothic cloister that have been turned into a museum featuring exquisite gold pieces and regal clothing items dating back to the Middle Ages.

Sachsenhausen District

Located on the left bank of the Main river, it is a very lively area of the city with pubs and bars where you'll be able to taste Frankfurt's traditional drink:

apple wine (apfelwein), as well as its culinary specialty like ox in green sauce, traditional cheese, or pretzels. Cobblestone streets and small squares surrounded by old houses carry the traveler to the most remote past of this German city.
