There is plenty to see in Frankfurt am Main. The unique skyline, the city´s premier sight - seeing attraction, is visible for miles. The Römer, Frankfurt Cathedral and St. Paul´s Church are all absolute must-sees. If the hustle and bustle of everyday business life is not what you prefer, then take a relaxing stroll down to the majestic River Main and pay a visit to the "Gardens of Nice", brimful with all forms of Mediterranean flora. The Main metropolis is actually well known for its many beautiful parks and gardens, while the popular Palmengarten, the city´s botanical gardens, impresses with plant life from all across the globe. Frankfurt Zoo is another popular family destination, one that looks back on over 150 years of history and tradition. Expect yet another memorable experience at the time-honoured Höchst Porcelain Manufactory, where the secrets of porcelain manufacture are revealed. More vivid history is on display at the Goethe-House, birthplace of Frankfurt´s favourite son. Yet while some associate the Main metropolis with Germany´s most celebrated author and poet, others rather tend to think of the city´s immensely popular beverage, the famous Frankfurt apple wine. You will be able to get a taste of Frankfurt apple wine during a stop-over in Old Sachsenhausen. The bright red, "hop-on, hop-off" double-decker bus is a great way for visitors to discover "Mainhattan", enabling them to create their own personal city sightseeing tour. Here, in the city of short distances, you will find that most downtown sightseeing attractions are within walking distance of one another.
