Numerous old buildings from the Gründerzeit period give the neighborhood its flair, as well as numerous trendy bars, cozy cafes, and a wide selection of restaurants and traditional cider taverns. Here traditional food is served in a rustic setting together with cider. Sachsenhausen was dominated by orchards up until the 19th century and apple cider was produced here. Cycle through small streets and the painters’ quarter to the southern banks of the Main River with the famous Museum Embankment.

Cross over the Holbeinsteg bridge to the other side of the Main River and ride through Frankfurt’s old town.

What people are saying about Frankfurt

I didnt realise that the tour was for a small group. We had a total of 7 people. We took a minivan and Michael was very accommodating and made us feel comfortable. We were like a family travelling together. Michael shared with us alot of information along the way. He also shared recommendations on places to go to, restaurants to visit and things we can do in Frankfurt. He also brought us to the castle, the Pharmacy Museum, The Hielderberg Tun and shared with us the history behind it. We were give ample time to expore the old town. It was truly a heartwarming experience and Michael made it even more memorable.

Great event: Super personable, super tasty. With other people we visited four spots that you don't necessarily know even as a Frankfurter, where we had delicious food. The portions are decent, so that (unfortunately) not much fits in at the end. A little tip: Hold back at the first spot ;) We will definitely do it again! Great idea.

Although was a company scheduling issue at the beginning, it worked it out well. Michael our driver was very personable, knowledgeable and eager to assist. The castle has much history and details to observe, I think a bit more time to explore old downtown would have made it greater. I’m satisfied with services provided. Thank you!

Our family enjoyed our walking tour. Our guide guided meet us at our hotel and gave us a great overview of the city. We especially liked that we were able to request specific interests to have the tour fit us.

Excellent tour and service . It was a very pleasant experience. The tour was excellently organised
