Top tips: The best photo hotspots

Take a picture of Frankfurt

Even in summer, when the sun shines from a bright blue sky on the city or sets in the evening in rich colors, Frankfurt is perfect for unforgettable photos. There are, of course, quite a few motifs in the city that tourists in particular, but also Frankfurt residents, like to photograph again and again. The Euro sign in front of the former headquarters of the European Central Bank, for example, the main train station, the Goethe House, the beautiful fountains of the city or, of course, the imposing skyline are snapped many thousands of times a day. We introduce you to a few places from which you get the city particularly beautiful in front of the lens:

Old Bridge

Naturally, the Iron Bridge is the most popular motif among bridges. Especially lovers like to take pictures next to the numerous love locks. And the Iron Bridge is also very popular with tourists. But for skyline motifs, the Old Bridge is actually the better location. On one side there is a complete view of the skyscrapers, on the other side is the also very photogenic east with the ECB and Main Plaza. And the "Brickegickel" and Karl the Great are there to boot!


The 185 meter high local mountain of Frankfurt is a very popular destination. No wonder, you have a really breathtaking view of the city from here. Particularly good photo locations are the Lohrpark and the Lohrberger Hang. And if you're ever here, be sure to stop in at the Lohrberg-Schänke or the MainÄppelHaus with its nice bistro and farm shop. By the way, until October 03, the Lohrbergbus will take you to this beautiful destination every weekend.


Few places in Frankfurt are photographed so often. Countless groups of tourists pass through here every day, which then also make the Justitia Fountain one of the most photographed motifs in the city. Even if the Justitia is in beauty treatment, the Römerberg makes a lot as a photo location. From here, it's also just a few meters to the new Old Town, which is also guaranteed to rise to Frankfurt's photo hot spots in the coming months.
