Delicious ice-cream and marvelous desserts

we stopped to grab some ice-cream, but there are also tables outside, so one can order a huge ice-cream dessert -like banana-split or a cup of ice-cream mix with cookies and chocolate. The variety is really good -I preferred a cherry yogurt and a scope of amaretto, though the last one was a bit too... read more

The popular ice cream shop can not be missed - there is always a queue of people waiting for the delicious cold sweet! The corner shop Eis Christina at the Eckenheimer Landstrasse and Wielandstrasse is the place to get into the summer flow - the ice cream served tastes like summer, the service (usually) feels like sunshine and the calories...

This place is always crowded. The ice cones are big and there is a lot of choice. Interesting combinations like strawberry and balsamico or lemon and basil. But I was quite disappointed because I was expecting better tasting ice then I got. Certainly good but I know where to get better ice cream in Frankurt.

As the icecream is made of natural flavors it does not come in the brightest colors but the taste is great. Not too soft and foamy as you will often find it these days. Service can be somewhat rude at times but the ice cream makes more than up for that

No lie - best of the best... Lots of flavors to choose from and almost always a line on a hot summer day. Nothing better! Places to sit outside but usually always full, definitely worth a visit if you're in Nordend

Located in a pleasant area of the city, on a corner, it is a good place to sit down, have an ice cream and enjoy the pleasant sun on a sunny afternoon. Very clean place with delicious ice creams. I recommend it!!! One of my favorite is the mango ice cream!

This is definitely best Italian gelateria in the Rhein-Main area. Very delicious with a great variety of flavors and down to earth prices.

I'm not sure why so many people use Italian ice cream and gelato as the gold standard. Certainly, compared to that I think Eis Christina is better, but that doesn't make it the best ice cream. I guess I just prefer frozen custard and other good heavy ice creams (or sometimes soft-serve, and I don't care if you judge me... More

Having very recently come back from a trip to Italy I'm going to break the hearts of my italian friends but... actually I think Eis Cristina is better than any of the gelato I've had in Italy. And I tried several recommended locations by the locals. Eis Cristina is that good and also incredibly cheap, specially considering Frankfurt standards.

I went to this "Eiscafé" with a friend, she's living in Frankfurt and she told me "this is the best place ever to have an ice cream", and I was like "ok , maybe it's good but it can't be SO amazing", and fortunately I was wrong, and now I can tell you this Ice Cream Shop is one of... More
