Your qualified tour guide will show you the most beautiful sides of Frankfurt. Your tour begins in the heart of Sachsenhausen, one of the most popular districts in the city. Numerous old buildings from the Gründerzeit period give the neighbourhood its flair, as well as numerous trendy bars, cosy cafes, and a wide selection of restaurants and traditional cider taverns.
Cycle through small streets and the painters’ quarter to the southern banks of the Main River with the famous Museum Embankment. Here you will find the Städel Museum with the spectacular extension and the renowned exhibitions, the Liebieghaus, and the Museum of Applied Art.
Cross over the Holbeinsteg bridge to the other side of the Main River and ride through Frankfurt’s old town. The Römer overlooks the old royal road leading to the Frankfurt Cathedral (which isn’t actually a cathedral) and the beautiful half-timbered buildings.
Cycle through the heart of the city on traffic-free roads to the new and old opera houses, and admire the impressive cityscape with its high-rise towers. A detour takes you to the old stock exchange with the popular motif of the bull and bear.

The new tower of the European Central Bank (ECB) is the impressive counterpoint to the high-rise buildings located on the west side.
