Things to do in Frankfurt
Embark on a trip to Frankfurt and experience a richness of attractions. In the old town of Frankfurt there are many preserved buildings that are worth visiting, such as the St. Bartholomäus Cathedral. In front of the Cathedral lie the archaeological gardens with excavations from the Roman and Carolingian periods. For bus travelers who are interested in the Roman period, a visit here is an absolute must. Areas like these show how Frankfurt is a city with historical depth, as well as being famous for the striking skylines, what Frankfurt is most well known for. One of the oldest and longest standing buildings of Frankfurt is the Römer - the picturesque building holds a beautifully landscaped space between the main pedestrian zone of Frankfurt – the “Zeil” – and the train station. This is one of the biggest contrasts between the modern and the old Frankfurt; showing the diversity from the historical buildings of Frankfurt to the towering skyscrapers of “Mainhatten.” These are, as soon as your bus arrives in Frankfurt, not to be overlooked. Next to the “Deutsche Bank Twin Towers,” stands the “Messeturm.” Almost like a gigantic pencil, this building protrudes from the ground and welcomes our bus travelers and tourists alike into its 20 meter high entrance hall. In order to enjoy a breathtaking view of the skyscraping city, we recommend a trip up to the top of the Eschenheim Tower. This tower was once a medieval city gate in Frankfurt but now stands as one of its most outstanding landmarks. The now demolished Henninger Tower was named after the annual cycle race “Rund um den Henninger-Turm,” sometimes called “The Frankfurt Grand Prix,” (1962-2008) and unfortunately can no longer be visited by bus travelers.
