Romer Place in Frankfurt

After pickup from the Frankfurt airport by your guide, your private layover tour begins at Frankfurt Central Train Station (Frankfurt Hauptbahnhof), just west of the city center. From here, your guide will take you across the Friedensbruecke (Peace Bridge) over the River Main and point out Frankfurt's 13 museums along the renowned Museum Embankment.

Continue to Old Sachsenhausen, a pedestrian district of Frankfurt famed for its lively cafés, bars and restaurants, where you can embark on a short walk if you wish. Then, head back across the River Main by way of Alte Brucke (Old Bridge), driving along the Northern Embankment. Catch sight of the New Opera House, Hauptwache (main guardhouse) and Goethe House – birthplace of the 18th-century poet.

Passing skyscrapers and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in the banking quarter, head toward the Westend district and learn about the many landmarks from your guide. You’ll see famous monuments including Eschenheimer Tower, the Old Opera House, Bockenheimer Warte (guardhouse), Senckenberg Museum (museum of natural history) and Frankfurt Messe (trade fairgrounds).

Next, you’ll drive back to the city center to admire Römer, the site of city hall for 600 years and considered one of Frankfurt’s most important historical buildings. After viewing the Frankfurt Cathedral (Kaiserdom), visit the Market Hall (Kleinmarkthalle) where 150 vendors sell wholesale produce and other foods, or enjoy some free time exploring on your own.

Your private tour ends with return transport to the Frankfurt airport.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2013

This was a great way to avoid a long layover in Frankfurt. Our driver was right on time...waiting for us outside of customs. He had suggestions on what to see and a great restaurant for lunch. All seven of us enjoyed ourselves. Our driver was excellent. Thank you for offering this experience

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2013

The guide was just fine and tried to do the best he could. The problem was that their isn't much to see unless you want to go into museums. We felt the tour should have been much shorter. Three hours at most, which would still leave time for lunch. We just skipped the last two hours.
