As an art historian and inveterate traveler, I believe that the history of a country should not be kept only in books, but should be explored corner by corner in its cities. For this reason, more than 5 years ago I left the office and decided to go out to the street to directly connect the traveler with the history and culture of the place. My experience as a guide in different European cities has allowed me to harmonize the enormous historical-cultural content of Frankfurt, with all the necessary practical information (such as restaurants, nightlife, shopping, etc.) to make a trip a total experience.

Tour description

Come with us to the other bank of the Main River, leaving behind imperial Frankfurt and its skyscrapers to enter one of the oldest and most charming neighborhoods in the city: the old Sachsenhausen.
We will walk through its cobbled streets, visit the oldest half-timbered house in the city and learn all about its most famous attraction, the Apfelwein.
We will begin the tour in Römer Square , talking about the history of Apfelwein and its close historical relationship with the city of Frankfurt and imperial coronations.

From there we will begin the march to the other side of the Mainz River, crossing the most famous bridge in the city, the iron bridge (Eisernerg Steg) where there are some of the best panoramic views of the city.
On the other side of the river , we will walk along the banks of the museums and visit one of the most important churches in the city, the Church of the Epiphany (Dreikönigskirche) , popularly known as “Sachsenhausen Cathedral”.
On the way to Old Sachsenhausen , we will visit the oldest half-timbered house in the city and the former headquarters of the Order of Teutonic Knights.

Once we have actually reached the area of ​​Old Sachsenhausen, we will walk through its beautiful cobbled streets, talk about its famous cider houses and its innumerable fountains, stopping particularly at the most famous fountain of all, Mrs. Rauschel's.

On this tour you will learn everything about one of the favorite areas of Frankfurters and without a doubt one of the most charming and lively neighborhoods in the entire city.
