Guided City Stroll: Between Palm Trees and the Frankfurt Skyline (German-language)



A concrete urban jungle? No, that's definitely not Frankfurt! During this little expedition, you'll find out why Frankfurt is in fact more of a palm paradise than a city made of steel and stone.

With this tour through Europe's smallest metropolis, you'll find out many new things. You'll find out, for example, that the Cote d'Azur is not as far away as you may think. You'll find out why Empress "Sisi" of Austria once found herself stranded in Frankfurt, and that the famous explorer, Maria Sibylla Merian, grew up here, collecting her first caterpillars before heading out into the big wide world.

You'll find out all of this while hearing many more interesting stories and anecdotes as told by our expert Frankfurt tour guides. You'll also explore some of the many green paths leading through "Mainhattan". From the Römer to the Alte Oper, you'll discover on beaten paths some of the city's many oases of green as well as some of its many hidden places, both unusual and surprising. You'll experience new perspectives, discover breathtaking panorama views and become acquainted with all kinds of unexpected things, here in our small metropolis with its great big heart. Best of all, you'll find yourself surrounded by Mother Nature, right here in the bustling city centre.
