Full description

Join a local food guide on an exclusive tour of Old Town and discover dishes, desserts, and beers that are made based on centuries-old recipes. Taste the essence of Frankfurt and see Romer, St Paul’s Church, Frankfurt Cathedral, and much more.

During the 2.5-hour tour, your guide will introduce you to Heissan cuisine, which fuses North German and South German cuisine to create new original dishes dominated by a remarkably sour taste.

Between sightseeing of St. Paul’s Church (Paulskirche), the adorable Gothic-style Romer city hall, and other Old Town highlights, you'll visit a traditional restaurant and pastry shop for a fun and cultural tasting experience. Among some of the local meat delicacies, you'll find Frankfurt-style German sausages, such as Frankfurter Würstchen (short Frankfurter) and Frankfurter Rindswurst (pure beef sausage). Taste a local soup like a traditional Goulash, and the delicious eggs in the Frankfurt-style green sauce.

For a dessert, you must try Apfelstrudel (Apple strudel) or the famous Frankfurter Kranz, which is considered a reminiscence of Frankfurt as the coronation city of the Holy Roman emperors. A cup of tea/coffee and 1 soda drink are also included in the price. Join the 3,5-hour tour to try more delicious dishes! This option includes a visit to 2 restaurants and 1 pastry shop, meaning that you'll feast on not one but two full meals and a dessert.

On the extended menu, find Kartoffelklöße (potato dumplings), Döppekuchen (fried potatoes), as well as 1 type of popular German beer. It'll be an unforgettable experience filled with lots of information about Frankfurt’s history, culture, and heritage. The 5-hour tour combines exploring Frankfurt's Old Town with an intimate food and beer tasting experience that'll make you feel as if you’re one of the locals. See sights such as Frankfurt Cathedral and the scenic Main Embankment featuring numerous museums.

Your guide will invite you to 4 different venues (no pastry shop), where you'll find a variety of delicious German dishes and 8 different types of beer. Get an appreciation for the local craft beer scene that bypassed the German Beer Purity Law to create new, unique beer flavors.

My tour guide was very knowledgeable about the city of Frankfurt and the food. It was a very pleasant experience, the food very tasty, and the pace non stressful. I did the tour with 2 stops for food. It was a lot to eat in a short period of time, basically 2 full meals in 3 hours. Also the price was a bit excessive even with the food and the time spent with my guide. My excellent review rating is for the quality of the food and tour experience.
