Old houses on cobblestone streets.

I think there are two things to clarify. There is an area close to the river with very old houses on cobblestone streets. Visit it during the day, and you'll have the area just... read more

My husband and I were in Frankfurt visiting from Canada and a good friend of ours was there at the same time from Cuba. It was such a great experience to be able to show him Frankfurt and take him to Fichtekranzi for typical german food and apfelwein. It is a wonderful town close to the river with old houses... More

During the day almost all the pubs and clubs are closed. Go there in the evening! Fantastic atmosphere! Old houses, nice people having party. I loved it.

Visit it during the day, and you'll have the area just for you to stroll around and take pictures of this nice area.

Coming in as a tourist everybody will inform you that this is one of the places must go to. I'm not suggesting that you shouldn't go there, but don't expect too much. Actually Sachsenhausen is a large area south of the river and completely different to Frankfurt city area on the other side. But what we're talking about here is... More

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

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.

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.
