Sachsenhausen is located just over the bridge from the Frankfurt Romer. I passed through this area of cobblestone streets during the day and there was not much happening, so I enjoyed the view of the old buildings and churches in the area. I have been in Sachsenhausen many times before and the place is certainly livelier in the evenings and... More

Great area with friendly people that made us feel welcome. The prices at restaurants were more than reasonable. Hotels all over the area. Go see the fun and chaos! LOL

If you ever get bored in Frankfurt, then go to Sachsenhausen to taste the local beer and get hammered. The Germans are funny, friendly and crazy. (Tip: avoid Shooters and the "kamikaze" shot.)

Great place to sample German beer in local taverns. Close to the subway as well. We killed an afternoon here on a long airport layover.

Having visited Sachsenhausen on two occasions I have to say I've always liked the laid-back feeling of the cosy little alleys and the choice of pubs, bars and restaurants. One can find the typical Frankfurter apfelwein-restaurants, modern chain restaurant, sports bars etc. really anything that can be fitted in the old town style of building I'd guess.

Spent the best part of a week in Frankfurt in July 2013 - and despite having been to the city many times before, this was my first time in Sachsenhausen. It felt like a bit of a hike getting there (we walked) but there is ample public transport to get you there and back easily. We wandered mid-afternoon and decided... More

Didn't visit at night, which is when i was told this place livens up, however I made a detour to have a wander one afternoon and it was very pleasant.

Many bars and restaurants in a pedestrian area between old houses. Very nice and happy atmosphere in the evening.

Interesting area if you want to drink and party. However we could not detect any historical relevance, as it seemed to only cater for drinking!
