Europe Road Trip – Day 1 – Frankfurt, Germany

In September 2008 we did a circular road trip around Europe starting in Frankfurt, Germany and travelling through Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic and finally back to Frankfurt Germany.

Frankfurt, Germany

We arrived into Frankfurt and had a day to explore this city before heading off on our road trip. We did a brief river cruise down the River Main and then explored the downtown area.

Frankfurt, a central German city on the river Main, is a major financial hub that’s home to the European Central Bank. It’s the birthplace of famed writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose former home is now the Goethe House Museum. Like much of the city, it was damaged during World War II and later rebuilt. The reconstructed Altstadt (Old Town) is the site of Römerberg, a square that hosts an annual Christmas market.

Frankfurt Cathedral

Frankfurt Cathedral, officially Imperial Cathedral of Saint Bartholomew is a Roman Catholic Gothic church located in the centre of Frankfurt. It is dedicated to Saint Bartholomew. It is the largest religious building in the city and a former collegiate church.

There were some street vendors selling local food from an old van which looked wonderful.

To finish off the visit we sat down and tried some traditional local beer and sausages in Haus Wertheym.
