Discover the most beautiful sights on foot
6. Updated and extended new edition
Driving through Frankfurt by car can quickly become a real horror. Looking for a parking space, construction sites, traffic jams - all these quickly spoil the desire to discover Frankfurt by car. Also other means of transport represent only conditionally a genuine alternative, since one is too much beaten to death by the hectic of the big city traffic both on the bicycle and in the public local traffic. Is a sightseeing tour still fun? But there is a real alternative that not only allows tourists but also interested Frankfurters to explore the city in all its facets. The book by Kristiane Müller-Urban and Eberhard Urban takes the reader on various walks through the city, where history, culture, nature, nightlife and of course the various shopping possibilities can be discovered. Enriched with helpful information such as connections to the underground and suburban trains, leisure activities for children, opening hours and admission prices, and accompanied by numerous photos, the authors lead the reader not only to well-known places such as the Kleinmarkthalle, the Alte Oper or the Schirn, but also present corners that are not to be found in every city guide.
In eleven chapters the reader is offered theme-specific tours, ranging from "Culture for All" along the museum bank to "In Honour of the Redeemer" to churches and monasteries to "The Despised Lane", a look at the Jewish Frankfurt of today and once. You can embark on a journey through sinful Frankfurt, explore the GreenBelt or stroll through Sachsenhausen. New in this edition are the chapters on the DomRömer quarter, which will dominate the image of Frankfurt's new Old Town in 2017, on Frankfurt's main cemetery and - in time for its 100th birthday - on the Goethe University. In addition, all information was updated and supplemented. Altogether this edition has been extended by forty pages, which also justifies a new purchase for readers who already have an earlier edition.
Den "Frankfurt zu Fuß" now offers even more beautiful suggestions for exciting city walks, which are presented in an appealing, compact and clear way. A city guide of a different kind, which makes you want to leave your car and bicycle behind and explore Frankfurt on foot. You will notice it: if you take your time and walk the tours of the book with open eyes, you will discover sides of the city that will offer even many old-established Frankfurters something new and surprising.
