Back in January, I went to Frankfurt for the weekend to meet up with some friends. The city is actually fairly easy to get around in a day as all the key places to see are in walkable distance, so no need for a car 🙂 We started with the North East district and then headed off to the city centre. If you go to Frankfurt, I recommend you to check the nice view over Frankfurt from MyZeil shopping centre, wander on the Zeil and discover the city main touristic landmarks such as the Römer, Saint Paul’s Church and the surrounding buildings which have a very unique architecture, the Cathedral, Eiserner Steg bridge, where lovers come to hang a padlock, and the opera among others. We finally ended up strolling around the indoor market Kleinmarkthalle while eating a hot dog style Bratwurst (German sausage) 🙂 Yummy!
We then headed off to Großer Feldberg in the Taunus mountain which is about 40 minutes drive from Frankfurt and allows you to get a nice view over the area and the city (usually :)). However, as we were approaching the top, the snow started! Super exciting! When we arrived at the top, it was freezing and snowing heavily so we took shelter in the restaurant Feldberg Hof for lunch. I ordered a hearty portion of Käsespätzle (traditional noodles with cheese) which was perfect considering the weather 🙂
Later on, once back in Frankfurt, we headed off to Struwwelpeter in Sachsenhausen district for drinks and diner where I tried the Frankfurter Schnitzel (a breaded pork cutlet with green sauce) with my Apfelwein. It is quite a touristy place but I thought the atmosphere was friendly, which is driven by the fact that everyone is crammed together on long wooden tables.
Check below for some pictures of my weekend in Frankfurt 🙂 So, would you like to visit it too?
