Sight seeing in Frankfurt
Language students are spoilt for choice for things to see and do in the banking metropolis of Frankfurt. Our language school lies directly in the heart of the city which means that everything can be reached within a matter of minutes, be it sightseeing, sport or traditional sampling Frankfurter cuisine. A short walk from our school brings you to the river Main. Here you should take a look at the many impressive bridges; the most famous of which being the “Eiserner Steg”, or “Iron Bridge” which was built in 1868 and connected the north side of the town directly to the south. Just at the foot of the “Eisernen Steg” is the Frankfurt Museum District, (Museumssufer) with its many fascinating museums.
Art galleries, the famous Frankfurt Zoo and the kilometre long shopping street know as “Zeil” can be reached in just a few minutes by foot from the school, or even more quickly with the subway. Further large shopping centres are just a few stops away from the city centre on the train. Sport fans will feel right at home in Frankfurt, the city offers many gyms as well as indoor and outdoor swimming pools. Large sporting events (Eintracht Frankfurt games for instance) and concerts take place in the newly opened Commerzbank Arena. Night clubs and restaurants can be found all over Frankfurt.
If you really want to get to know Frankfurt’s culture and history you absolutely have to visit one of the traditional Apfelwein pubs. In the old-town of the Sachsenhausen district (where our school is located) you have an impressive selection of traditional restaurants where you can sample the local cuisine and try famous dishes such as ‘Frankfurter Grüne Soße’- Frankfurt Green Sauce, or ‘Handkäse mit Musik’, a traditional cheese which is unique to the Frankfurt region. Thanks to Frankfurt’s impressive transport infrastructure other German towns and regions can be easily reached. Mainz, Wiesbaden, Heidelberg and Cologne are all must see cities.
