How to Spend 2 Days in Frankfurt

How to Spend 2 Days in Frankfurt

Two days in Frankfurt give you time to explore the city’s historic center, visit museums, or even spend a morning in nearby Heidelberg. Planning your trip in advance is the best way to maximize your time and will allow you to take advantage of super-saver deals or sightseeing passes. Here are your options.

Day 1: Hop Around Frankfurt

Morning: A walking tour or hop-on hop-off bus tour is the most convenient way to take in the central sights. Look up at the gleaming skyscrapers of Frankfurt’s Financial District, see landmarks like Eschenheimer Tower and the New Opera House, or take a stroll around the Palmengarten botanical garden.


Afternoon: Stop for lunch at one of the many restaurants in the Old Town, then visit the Römerberg, Frankfurt’s main square, where highlights include St. Paul's Church, St. Bartholomew's Cathedral, and a series of striking half-timbered buildings. Nearby, pay a visit to Goethe House, the former home of writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.

Night: Set sail along the Main River on an evening sightseeing cruise around Frankfurt. Enjoy a delicious dinner onboard and sample traditional Frankfurter cuisine as you float past glittering skyscrapers and illuminated landmarks.

Day 2: Markets and Museums

Morning: A morning tour of the medieval town of Heidelberg is one option, or else join locals at the Kleinmarkthalle, the city’s main market hall, where you can taste local sausages, green sauce (yogurt and sour cream with herbs) and handkäse (sour milk cheese). Afterward, browse the shops along the Zeil, Frankfurt’s principal shopping boulevard and the best place to pick up some souvenirs.

Afternoon: On the south bank of the river, Frankfurt’s Museumsufer (Museum Embankment), is home to 13 museums. Combination tickets are available for those visiting multiple museums. Some of the most popular include the Städel Art Institute, the German Film Museum, and the Museum of World Cultures.

Night: Sample Frankfurt’s famous apfelwein (apple wine) at a traditional wine tavern in the Sachsenhausen district, just south of the Museumsufer. The historic district is most lively after dark when a wide selection of bars, pubs, and jazz clubs stay open until late.
