Get the best out of Frankfurt in less than a day
Planning your next trip? With a city like Frankfurt how does one actually decide how to spend a day? Whether to catch a screening at the German Film Museum, stroll the exhibit halls of one of it’s many galleries, or just explore the streets and let the city surprise you.
When you have multiple days for exploring a city it gets easier to make a plan and hopefully enjoy a bit of everything. But if you are in the city for business rather than pleasure or maybe you have a layover with many hours between flights, that’s when it might get challenging. Obviously you are not just going to wait around. No matter how many hours you have, open your map and get going. Here are some things that you can do while in Frankfurt that won’t take a lot of time but will still satisfy your touristic soul.
Take a stroll over the Eiserner Steg bridge
The Eiserner Steg (Iron bridge) is a footbridge leading over the river Main which connects the centre of Frankfurt with the district of Sachsenhausen. The bridge offers lovers a chance to strap on a love lock as a way to profess their never-ending love for one another. Not that I encourage this, but they do make for some nice-looking pictures, plus the bridge offers a great view of the city.
It is located in front of the Römer building complex, seat of the Frankfurt city administration . As the site of numerous Imperial coronations, trade fairs and Christmas markets, the square is the historic heart of the medieval Altstadt (old town). It’s also my favorite thing about Frankfurt.
The Frankfurt Cathedral (Frankfurter Dom), is a Roman Catholic Gothic church located in the center of the city. It is dedicated to Saint Bartholomew. Since it was used for the coronation of German kings and Holy Roman Emperors, this imperial cathedral is one of the most important cathedrals in Germany. Built between the 13-15th centuries, the cathedral houses some priceless masterpieces such as the high alter.
