This is the central place of Frankfurt. Important shops and restaurants around. From the Kaufhof last floor you have a beautiful sight on the town.

It is few minutes walk from main train station. You can climb one of the complex and can enjoy the city from the top. It is the best place to take photographs.

The Hauptwache is the main square of the city with a lot of shopping possibility. Only a few steps away from River Main.

Originally built as the headquarters of the city's militia in the eighteenth century, the building now serves as a café. The square is also the starting point of the pedestrian zone and the shopping area of Zeil. Worth a short stop on a shopping trip....More

Central plaza, old buildings, good and affordable food and nice view from the top of the department store. As the title says, all in one :-)

A lot of shops, good area, big variety and a nice place to be in the summer time, however at night a lot of homeless people can be roaming the streets in this area.
