The 5 Best Frankfurt Attractions You’ve Never Heard Of

Friday May 1, 2015

Most visitors to Frankfurt stick to the predictable tourist hotspots—the historic Römerplatz with its charming half-timbered buildings, the Museumsufer lining the Main River, the various famous bridges and buildings and skyscrapers—but, there is much more depth to this peculiar German city than meets the eye. Affectionately known as “the smallest metropolis in the world,” Frankfurt am Main has a curious mixture of Roman beginnings, rapid urban developments in the inner city, traditional food and wine culture, and cosmopolitan residents. Get to know Frankfurt like a local with these alternative Frankfurt Attractions!

 

1.    Bergerstrasse (Berger Street)

The businessmen and tourists may hang out in Frankfurt city center, but Frankfurt locals are more likely to be found relaxing and socializing after work and on weekends at the bars, restaurants, and pubs of Berger Street in Frankfurt’s Bornheim neighbourhood. Start off with a Weissbier or pils at one of the many corner pubs, then head into Apfelwein Solzer for a taste of Frankfurt’s signature drink: Apfelwein, or “apple wine,” a kind of local apple cider. Sample some traditional German cuisine and wash it down with an apricot schnapps, followed by coffee and a stroll down the street to check out the nightlife.

 

2.    Konstablerwache Farmer’s Market

Twice a week, come rain or shine or snow, you’ll find the chaotic Farmer’s Market at Konstablerwache Square in Frankfurt city center. It’s at the end of the main shopping street Hauptwache, and many locals congregate here to drink wine, catch up with friends, and buy their weekly fresh produce groceries. The atmosphere is always friendly and festive, and you’re sure to bump into someone speaking English amid the crowd. This is one of the things to do in Frankfurt, Germany, that will give you a great taste of the people and lifestyle of the residents of the city.

 

3.    Grüneburg Park

Germans take their outdoor leisure time seriously, and this is especially true in cities like Frankfurt. Locals escape the urban jungle to play table tennis, do yoga, walk their dogs, or just relax on the grass with a book and a beer. (Yes, it’s legal to drink alcohol in public places in Germany!). Grüneburg Park is huge, with large open areas for cycling, running, and sports, and it boasts both a Greek Orthodox Church and a Korean park within its grounds.

 

4.    Museum of Modern Art (MMK)

Most visitors to Frankfurt stick to the traditional art museums like the Staedel, but if you’re more into Otto Dix than the Great Masters, stop by the Museum of Modern Art for a heady dose of strange and exceptional contemporary art. The collection includes works from famous artists from the 1950s such as Roy Liechtenstein, Andy Warhol, George Segal, and many installations and artworks by new contemporary artists.

 

5.    Ebbelwei Express
Forget the red bus city tours and peak hour traffic; cruise through Frankfurt in a colorful sightseeing tram instead! Take a seat and enjoy your frankfurt-attractions-tramcomplimentary apfelwein or sparkling water and pretzels as you tour the city at a leisurely pace. This type of tour is perfect for slowing down and taking in the sights when the city feels a bit intimidating or overwhelming, and it provides a good supplement to a more thorough walking tour once you find your way around!
