Itinerary

To join the Frankfurt City Guided Tour make your way to the tour office at Wiesenhüttenstr. 39, 60329 Frankfurt. (Hotel pick up service is available for Frankfurt Hotels - payable direct at approx euro 5.00 per person.)

The fun begins when you board an open-top bus. You will see Frankfurt’s two famous churches – Frankfurt Cathedral and St. Paul’s Church. St. Paul’s Church is a historic monument with great political symbolism because it was the seat of the first democratically elected Parliament in 1848.

The tour stops twice – at Römer Square and in old Sachsenhausen. At these stops you will get off the bus accompanied by the guide. Römer Square is the historic heart of Frankfurt, built on Roman settlements dating from the 1st century. The site is now occupied by a complex of nine houses that form the Frankfurt City Hall (Rathaus).

Sachsenhausen, on the south bank of the Main River, was founded as Frankfurt's bridgehead in the 12th century. Today it is known for its vibrant nightlife, sporting over two dozen bars, taverns and restaurants. One of the landmarks of Sachsenhausen is the Goetheturm, birthplace of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German writer, artist, and politician. Another attraction is the Museum Embankment (Museumsufer), which has some of Germany's best-known museums.

You will also see the International Trade Fair grounds, home to the Frankfurt Trade Fair, the third largest worldwide. The oldest building is the Festhalle, a self-supporting dome structure made of steel and glass that was first opened to visitors in 1909.

Your next stop is the Old Opera (Alte Oper), a former opera house built in 1880. It was one of the major opera houses in Germany until it was heavily damaged in World War II. Until the late 1970s it was a ruin, nicknamed "Germany's Most Beautiful Ruin". Due to public pressure it was finally fully reconstructed and reopened in 1981.

After your encounter with music, you turn to finance, viewing the banking quarter with its skyscrapers, among which the European Central Bank is the highest. Frankfurt is the financial center of Germany and the largest financial center in continental Europe.

You proceed to the Hauptwache building, built in 1730 and used as a prison – the name translates into “main guard house”. Today it is mostly associated with the inner-city underground train station of the same name and the square surrounding the building is also called Hauptwache.

The tour turns from prisons to shopping. You will see the Zeil, Frankfurt’s main shopping street. For over 50 years, the Zeil has thrilled locals and visitors who enjoy first class shopping.

Next you will view the big towers of the former city walls. Frankfurt was once surrounded by walls and the Staufer Wall (Staufermauer), from the 12th century, was part of the city’s first fortifications.

Your tour ends back at the starting point at Wiesenhüttenstr. 39. Hotel drop-off can be arranged for an extra charge (approx euro 5.00 per person).
