this part of the city was different from the main part of it. This is kinda hipster, full of bars and pubs, lively and has drive, old streets and buildings are worth to see. Nice place

My friend and I headed to Sachsenhausen for an early dinner and could see the area slowly coming to life. The area is full of restaurants and cobblestone streets. It is great place to wander around and maybe a grab a bite.

Sachenhausen has a teeming nightlife with eateries, beer and wine bars, eros centers (sex for sale), souvenir shoppes. Located near the Hauptbahnhof, it can be visited easily while waiting for your train

Old Sachsenhausen is full of Applewein bars, restaurants, an Irish pub and various music venues all accessible by foot. This is the most consistent place to find nightlife in Frankfurt. In particular the Applewein bar Fichti Kränzi, just a bit off the beaten bath.

Nice area in a big city. I can imagine that it's nice to rest there after a hard workday. Even for tourist it's nice but to be honest I find it a bit too small...

So underwhelming that I thought I was in the wrong place. I have traveled alot in Germany and was disappointed that a large city can boast this as an 'alt stadt'. The one true comment people make is this is the best of Frankfurt, thank God for the Airport and fantastic museums to save it's reputation.
