City tour in “Mainhattan”

Meeting point at the train RB60 / platform 7 at the Main Railway Station (Hauptbahnhof) Departure 10:30 a.m.
Duration appr. 4h
The participants should all have a day ticket for the area Darmstadt-Frankfurt with them (can be bought at any bus/tram stop or at the railway station)
Frankfurt is the only German city centre with a cluster of remarkable high-rise-buildings. The tour begins after the train journey (about 30 Minutes) with the visit of the Maintower panorama-platform at the height of 200 meters. After the overview of the city we explore the old town area including the historic sites “Römer” and the cathedral as well as the new city development in this district – by not forgetting the river Main as the origin of the metropolis. Today’s Frankfurt is also excellent for shopping – so our trip leads through the pedestrian area and ends at the “Alte Oper”-Square with a possibility to have lunch or individual shopping.
