Sites and attractions

Visitors should go and see the Romberg, Frankfurt's old central square. The 14th and 15th Century buildings have been restored to show how the city looked prior to WWII.

East of Romberg is the newly restored cathedral, the coronation site of Holy Roman emperors from 1562 to 1792. It's dominated by the elegant 15th- century Gothic tower- one of the few structures left standing after bombings in 1944. Anyone with an interest in German literature should also visit the Goethe-Haus museum and library. The Frankfurt Zoo is also a popular place for visitors to unwind. Museums are mostly closed Mondays and some offer free entry on Wednesdays.


Known to locals as Fressgass (Munch-alley), the Kalbacher Gasse and Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse area between Opernplatzand Borsenstrasse, has medium-priced restaurants and fast-food places. Blaubart Gewolbekeller, off the Fressgass, serves a range of hearty dishes. Apple-wine taverns are a Frankfurt tradition, serving Ebbelwoi (an alcoholic apple cider) along with hearty food.
