Full description
Follow your guide from the lively modern center of the bank towers, through the lovingly reconstructed old town, to the trendy district south of the river Main. Here, you will enjoy selected Frankfurt delicacies at traditional pubs, family-run shops, hip hotspots, and extraordinary places. This tour is like a multi-course meal and you will visit a new location and taste a different food or drink specialty with each course, accompanied by entertaining anecdotes about the Hessian Mainhattan. 

Kick off your tour in a historic location that dates back to an era when news did not yet travel in bits and bytes in real time. Taste a fashionable sparkling beverage à la Frankfurt in the picturesque inner courtyard. Follow your guide to Frankfurts historic trade epicenter and experience the unique taste of Frankfurts infamous dairy specialty, which is offered with a modern twist by a cheese sommelier. Head to a local institution. This cozy restaurant, nestled under the high-rise towers of the banks next to Frankfurt’s most elegant shopping street, takes you back to the 1960s. Here, the food tastes just like how mother used to make it. Join the devotees of good taste who come dressed in suits, work clothes, and designer dresses to delight in the finest Frankfurt soul food. 

Sample Goethe’s favorite meal in a traditional award-winning family establishment close to a hidden cloister yard. Discover the cradle of Frankfurt food culture and see the fish tank in the cellar. Immerse yourself into the lovingly reconstructed historical town center and hear amusing anecdotes about its inhabitants. Meet a modern alchemist in a former pharmacy, who dedicates his life to refining Frankfurt’s liquid gold. This is why the shop’s cabinets no longer contain medicines but fine handmade droplets of Apfelwein. Once you have tasted a single-apple variety of this Hessian cider, your impressions of the drink will change for good. Feast on a hearty main course at the quaint house of the first cider queen, followed by a sweet homemade dessert. Enjoy a Frankfurt specialty, which has been famous for 175 years. It will be lovingly crafted by fourth generation members of this family of master chefs. Your tour is circular and will conveniently conclude at the meeting point.
