4. The Goethe House
Just in case you did not know, Germany's famous and most important writer, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, was born in Frankfurt in the year 1749. While in Frankfurt, you should not miss to visit Goethe's house, situated close to Römerberg. While Goethe's house was destroyed in the Second World War, it was completely restored with original furniture, paintings and books belonging to the family. Take inspiration from the writing desk, where Goethe wrote "The Sorrows of Young Werther."
5. Enjoy apple cider at Sachsenhausen District
Frankfurt's famous signature beverage is Apfelwein or Ebbelwoi as the Frankfurters say. It is a crisp and alcoholic apple cider that is locally produced in the regions around Frankfurt.You can find some of the best and oldest apple cider taverns in the cobblestone streets of Frankfurt's historic Sachsenhausen district, south of the Old Town. Or combine a tour of the city with its favored drink on the Ebbelwei Express, a landmark tram that drives through the town to the tunes of traditional schlager music. As there might be a lot of drinking involved during your visit, please make sure to rent a bus with driver from our Coach Charter Europe charter bus depot to travel safely.
6. St. Paul's Church
St. Paul's Church, built between 1789 and 1833, is the birthplace of German democracy: the church was used for political meetings and was the seat of the first openly elected German parliament in 1848. Today, Paulskirche no longer functions as a church and acts as an exhibition venue for activities such as the annual awarding of the German Book Exchange Peace Prize at the Frankfurt Book Fair. It is situated at Römerberg.
7. Palmengarten (Botanical Gardens)
Established in 1868 by a group of Frankfurt residents, the Botanical Garden takes you on a horticultural journey from the African savannah and tropical rainforest plants to the flowering flower gardens of Europe. Spread over 50 open acres and various greenhouses, you can see more than 6,000 various botanical plants from all over the world.
8. Shopping at Zeil
Shopping at Zeil should also be on your to-do list while in Frankfurt. The key place to shop in Frankfurt is the busy pedestrian zone called Zeil. Often known as "The Fifth Avenue of Germany," this shopping street offers everything from trendy boutiques to multinational chain stores to the new 10-storey shopping center, the Zeil Galerie. Have your Coach Charter Europe tour bus driver on stand-by while you empty the stores.
9. Frankfurt Cathedral
The Frankfurt Cathedral (Frankfurter Dom) is the oldest church in Frankfurt. From the 14th century onwards, the Kings of the Holy Roman Empire were elected to this Catholic Church. Since the mid-16th century to the end of the 18th century, emperors were crowned here.
10. Eiserner Steg
The iron footbridge of Frankfurt, spanning the Main River between the city center and the Sachsenhausen district, has seen an eventful 150 years since it was completed in 1869. It was repaired twice, the first time in 1912 when the Main was made navigable to larger ships, and again after the Nazis had blown it up in the last days of the Second World War. There is special charm in the metal frame of the bridge, and the perfect time to cross is late in the day when the low sun lights up the high-rise buildings in the Bankenviertel.
