Frankfurt: 3-Hour Bike Tour

1. Frankfurt: 3-Hour Bike Tour

This bike tour is ideal for both Frankfurt old-timers and new visitors to the city. The tour offers the perfect mix of famous landmarks (the Römer, European Central Bank, the Goethe House, etc.), and insider tips. Your qualified tour guide will show you the most beautiful sides of Frankfurt. Your tour begins in the heart of Sachsenhausen, one of the most popular districts in the city. Numerous old buildings from the Gründerzeit period give the neighborhood its flair, as well as numerous trendy bars, cozy cafes, and a wide selection of restaurants and traditional cider taverns. Here traditional food is served in a rustic setting together with cider. Sachsenhausen was dominated by orchards up until the 19th century and apple cider was produced here. Cycle through small streets and the painters’ quarter to the southern banks of the Main River with the famous Museum Embankment. Here you will find the Städel Museum with the spectacular extension and the renowned exhibitions, the Liebieghaus, and the Museum of Applied Art. Cross over the Holbeinsteg bridge to the other side of the Main River and ride through Frankfurt’s old town. The Römer overlooks the old royal road leading to the Frankfurt Cathedral (which isn’t actually a cathedral) and the beautiful half-timbered buildings. St. Paul’s Church, the cradle of German democracy, is located only a few meters away. You will then ride along the Großer Hirschgraben to Goethe’s family residence. The famous writer was born here and spent his youth here. He impressively described this time in his autobiography Poetry and Truth. The green Alleenring was built on the former medieval line of defense in the 20th century. Cycle through the heart of the city on traffic-free roads to the new and old opera houses, and admire the impressive cityscape with its high-rise towers. A detour takes you to the old stock exchange with the popular motif of the bull and bear. Back on the Alleenring, you will cycle east of the city and return to the Main River. The new landmark of the city will then be located directly in front of you. The new tower of the European Central Bank (ECB) is the impressive counterpoint to the high-rise buildings located on the west side. One of the most popular bars in the city is situated right by the water, at the foot of the former wholesale market hall, which is now part of the ECB. The Oosten bar has a great terrace overlooking the city. Ride across the much acclaimed new bridge from the East Harbor back to the southern banks of the Main River, and make another detour to the Gerbermühle building. It was the former summer resort of the Willemer banking family. Goethe socialized here in 1814-1815 and was inspired by the daughter of the house in some of his works. The Gerbermühle building is now home to a popular restaurant. You will then cycle a few meters back to the starting point in Sachsenhausen, where the tour ends. At the end of the tour your tour guide will show you the traditional cider taverns in Frankfurt. The bike route takes you along quiet, traffic-free cycle paths and roads. Your tour guide will provide detailed information on the sights during regular stops along the way.

Although the actually planned guide was canceled at short notice, the organizer reacted very well and organized a very friendly and competent replacement within a very short time, so that the tour was carried out very sympathetically, even with excess lengths and a personal touch, to the complete satisfaction of the participants.

Cycling through Frankfurt is just the right pace. Our guide was great and also linked the historical aspects with the spirit of the present. That was great. We had a wonderful 2.5-3 hours. Thank you very much. We would recommend it at any time.
