Full description
This hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour on board a double-decker bus will take you to all the most important sights of Frankfurt, like St. Bartholomew's Cathedral, site of the election and coronation rites of the Holy Roman Empire, and the Financial District, now Europe's most important banking center. Visit the historic Old Town, its famous City Hall – called Römer for its association with the Emperors – the Cathedral, the Church of St Paul, and Goethe's house. Scarcely any other German city boasts as many extraordinary contrasts as Frankfurt: the towers of the ancient city wall, dwarfed by the massive skyscrapers of the Banking Quarter – among them the second-highest one in Europe – offer just one of its stunning architectural vistas. Here you can see the European Central Bank, the old Hauptwache – headquarters of the town militia in the 18th Century – and the justly famous shopping quarter, known as "Zeil." And of course there is the Museum Riverbank, one of the most important cultural districts in Europe, containing the Old Opera House, the scene of internationally renowned premieres. On this tour you'll discover what Frankfurt has to offer. The last trip of the day starts at 17:15 and a circuit without stops takes approximately 60 minutes. Bus stops: 1. Hauptbahnhof 2. Museumsufer 3. Eiserner Steg / Sachsenhausen 4. Haus der Jugend 5. Affentorplatz / Altes Sachsenhausen 6. Berliner Straße / Paulsplatz 7. Bankenviertel 8. Opernturm 9. Palmengarten 10. Senckenbergmuseum 11. Messe Frankfurt

    it was difficult to find the meeting place. A taxi driver was able to help us. Unfortunately, the meeting point is incorrectly specified online. When we finally found it, our day tour was great. There are 16 stations that are approached again and again during the course of the day. We kept getting in and out as we pleased. Great tour

    Super easy to book - use digital pass, very convenient on smart phone. Very friendly and personable staff who explained some of the sites we may enjoy and how the tour worked. Appreciated having a guide who spoke English! Wait time at stops was negligible. Commentary was good, enough information to give a good understanding of Frankfurt.

    Very good

    All that was missing was to be informed that the voucher must be exchanged at the GREEN LINE agency, which is close to the main departure point. I went to present my printed voucher directly to the driver, who informed me that he did not have a scanner and that I should go to the agency to exchange the ticket. This caused me to lose travel time, as I had to catch the next bus.
