Whether it’s an award-winning gourmet restaurant, a trendy eatery, international cuisine or a traditional apple wine pub, Frankfurt has something for every taste.

Classics include, amongst others, the famous apple wine, which is served in a “bembel” (a blue-grey stoneware jug) and drunk from a special ribbed glass. Apple wine pubs typically serve the popular beverage with frankfurters, green sauce or “handkäs’ mit musik”, little round cheeses marinated in vinegar and chopped onions. Most of the traditional apple wine taverns are located in Sachsenhausen.

The Freßgass', the city’s culinary main street, offers a wide range of cafés, restaurants, bistros and delis lining both sides of the street.

In Frankfurt, many different food markets take place during the week. Several parts of the city have their own market, which is organised at least once a week. There, you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, cheese and dairy produce, flowers and many other products.

There are fun shops in most areas of Frankfurt, but the most popular shopping area is in the centre of the city. The main pedestrian street Zeil offers two classic department stores, Kaufhof and Karstadt. This is also where you will find the Zeilgalerie mall with its seven floors and a roof terrace with great views of the city.

If you are looking for Gucci, Escada and Versace your best bet is to head for Goethestrasse, a more exclusive version of Zeil.

In the Sachsenhausen area, south of the Main River, is a more charming shopping area that caters to younger people.

Those who are looking for funkier shopping should go to the Bornheim area. Bergerstrasse has exciting design, fashion and vintage shops.
