Little Treasure across the River

Charming and quaint....a must visit for the most authentic food in Frankfurt. The cobble stone alley ways have so much to offer from shopping, to pubs to restaurants.

Sachsenhausen is perhaps the best place to be around Frankfurt. A wonderful town, yet close access over the river to the city. Wonderful restaurants, bars, and places to go - I loved living here and visiting it is always a pleasure. Just walk around and get lost in Altstadt, you'll always find something to enjoy

Old street in the heart Frankfurt. Full of bars and restaurants. Very funny at night time. Good outdoor places. Must visit if you want to enjoy ambiance of historic houses.

Lots of pubs that are mostly okay, plus many of Frankfurt's restaurants, are found in this neighborhood. Probably the best thing is to walk around and see the middle-ages tiny houses in the village center or the Gruenderzeit buildings around the Suedbahnhof and Schweizer Strasse.

This district is nice, but it was over hyped so therefore it under delivered. Plenty of places to eat and some nice old homes. Nice, old, Protestant church. Lots of locals hanging out. At 3pm I wasn't interested in any wine, so this area was good for a walk. The best part is getting to and from. Crossing the bridges... More

Sachsenhausen is a district just south of the Main river in Frankfurt. Famous for its many eateries and quaint inns, this is the place to sample the local tipple - apfelwein. Ideal for a Sunday afternoon walk, there are lots of interesting sights to see in this area.
