Heidelberg

Heidelberg

Heidelberg is one of the best one-day trips from Frankfurt am Main you can enjoy if you’re looking to visit a small old town with picturesque landscapes.

Around an hour away both by car or by train, the old town of Heidelberg is as charming as can be. It lies on the river Neckar, with Heidelberg Castle dominating the views.

Schloss Johannisberg

Schloss Johannisberg

Want to impress family and friends who are paying you a visit in Frankfurt? Schloss Johannisberg is our #1 pick.

A historic landmark of Germany’s wine industry, it’s also one of the countries oldest wineries producing riesling wine for over 900 years. When visiting the estate you can take a guided wine tasting tour around their candle lit cellar and 86 acres of vineyards, or have lunch at their Gutsschänke Restaurant, overlooking the vineyards and the river Rhein and offering delicious regional cuisine.

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).

Frankfurt Weihnachtsmarkt

Frankfurt-am-Main-Weihnachtsmarkt

Definitely one of the best things to do during the month of December in the city, simply un-missable if you’re in Frankfurt during the Holiday Season.

Turns out this is one of Germany’s most important Christmas Markets in terms of size and attendance.
