Restaurants & Shopping

Frankfurt’s restaurants have a lot more to offer than just the Frankfurt ‘national’ meals of ‘Handkäs’ with music’ and ‘Grüne Soße’. For the restaurant scene is just as lively and multicultural as the town itself. Visitors can try culinary specialities from many countries. There is sufficient choice for night owls too: there are restaurants, bars, clubs and discotheques in all parts of the city.

For shoppers, Frankfurt is a real ‘el dorado’ with its many shopping streets and centres. In addition to the famous shopping mile, ‘Zeil’, in the city centre, cosy or even exclusive shopping districts invite you to shop.

In the heart of Frankfurt’s city centre lies a shopping street with one of the highest turnovers in Europe. On the Zeil, the shops offer practically everything you could ever wish for.

The nickname, ‘Fressgass,’ for the pedestrian zone between Opernplatz and Börsenstraße is justified. Here there is a large selection of restaurants and various fine food shops.

Frankfurt too has its glamorous ‘Fifth Avenue’. Customers with expensive taste in designer fashions and exclusive jewellery, for example, are bound to find what they want in Goethestraße.
