1. Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour: Cathedral, Financial District & More

This hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour on board a double-decker bus will take you to all the most important sights of Frankfurt, like St. Bartholomew's Cathedral, site of the election and coronation rites of the Holy Roman Empire, and the Financial District, now Europe's most important banking center.

Here you can see the European Central Bank, the old Hauptwache – headquarters of the town militia in the 18th Century – and the justly famous shopping quarter, known as "Zeil." And of course there is the Museum Riverbank, one of the most important cultural districts in Europe, containing the Old Opera House, the scene of internationally renowned premieres.

What people are saying about Eiserner Steg

Super easy to book - use digital pass, very convenient on smart phone. Very friendly and personable staff who explained some of the sites we may enjoy and how the tour worked. Appreciated having a guide who spoke English! Wait time at stops was negligible. Commentary was good, enough information to give a good understanding of Frankfurt.

it was difficult to find the meeting place. A taxi driver was able to help us. Unfortunately, the meeting point is incorrectly specified online. When we finally found it, our day tour was great. There are 16 stations that are approached again and again during the course of the day. We kept getting in and out as we pleased. Great tour
