Fujiwara 3

Most Japanese expats will tell you this is their favorite Japanese restaurant in Frankfurt. We agree.

Everything in this small restaurant in Frankfurt’s Sachsenhausen neighbourhood is superb. You can see the traditional Japanese sushi chef at work, creating succulent sashimi (salmon that literally melts in your mouth), nigiris and rolls. They also prepare delicious traditional Japanese meat and fish dishes, together with various tempuras, soba and udon noodles.


Schweizer Platz Frankfurt

South of the Main river, this is a great neighbourhood for anyone looking to be close to the city center but in an area not as busy, although still lively.

The Schweizer Platz (pictured)  is the heart of the neighbourhood, with its tree lined square surrounded by beautiful old-style houses.

Frankfurt Flea Market

Frankfurt Fleamarket Schaumainkai

Frankfurt’s best Flea Market is without a doubt the one held every second Saturday in the shore of the river Main, in Sachsenhausen‘s Shaumainkai street.

With a fabulous view of Frankfurt’s skyline in the background, it’s a great place to stroll on a Saturday morning (it’s held from 9am to 2pm).
