The autumn colours have been spectacular back in Germany. Unlike UK’s dry, wet and windy weather, the sun shines brightly in a clear blue sky. Spend two days in Frankfurt without planning ahead, no direction at all and discovered everything on the day I arrived because my flight was right after my submission. That’s my first ever Europe trip and Germany does the best. Not the fairytale route but let’s talk about museum, strolling down the street and food.
Foot walking tour aside, I took the hop-on, hop-off bus tour. Starting from Frankfurt’s main train station, did the first round of city tour then hop-off to the Museumsufer where all the important museum along the riverside, visited German Architecture Museum(DAM) and hop-on the last stop at Senckenbergmuseum (Museum of Natural History).
Crossed the Eiserner Steg – the Iron Bridge which connects to Sachsenhausen. From the middle of the bridge, survey the skyline and enjoy the lively scene along the riverbanks of Frankfurt. My favourite place in Frankfurt – Römerberg, the historical old town centre, walked down at night to enjoy the quietness and beauty of the square.
Romer Pils Brunnen – for traditional German food. Schweinshaxe (pork knuckle) tasted really good!
Only discovered the Kleinmarkthalle (food market) after my lunch or else sausages will never go wrong. Local market is always the best things to do in every city. Explore and sample your way through the ground floor and fine eating upstairs. A little overpriced but the atmosphere is everything a market should be: delightful, warm and bustling.
Continued down to Kaiserstrasse(Frankfurt’s main street), one block away from the train station to the banking district, Goethe Platz for its central statue and lastly Zeil- Frankfurt’s main shopping street.
