      About this Frankfurt Tour

      Frankfurt's official name is Frankfurt am Main, with "Main" pronounced like "Mine." And its nickname is "Mainhattan," thanks to its importance when it comes to Europe's finance and business industries. The city, home to 5.5 million people, hosts not just a stock exchange and the European Central Bank's headquarters, but it also has the third-biggest airport in Europe, and is a central railroad hub as well as a top location for trade fairs.

      It's easy to learn such historical facts, figures, and details about Frankfurt from books and websites. But what is it like to live here? What are the untold stories of Frankfurt? That is the point of this two-hour walking tour. Sure, you'll get to see the attractions you would see in other tours, but your guide will also give you an exclusive inside look at Frankfurt.

      This is a great way to hear tales of the city of Frankfurt. Or tails of the city, such as why there are there stone cats on the roof of Frankfurt's City Hall. Here are some of the other questions you'll learn the answers to: Where did a set of falcons nest in the big city? Who lives in Frankfurt Cathedral's tower? Answers: Not where and who you might expect.

      Other amazing anecdotes about the city, from both famous people and average folks, round out the day. And due to the personal nature of the tour, you'll have the time to ask individual questions, take your time, and even add in sights you may have heard about. The tour ends with a spectacular bird's-eye view of Frankfurt from the Main Tower's rooftop observation tower.

      How the sausage is made

      Before gourmet street food became a thing, there was the humble hot dog, also called a frankfurter. And yes, the name frankfurter came from the city of Frankfurt. But the original delicacy, called a Frankfurter Wurtchen, is a little different. It is pure pork sausage encased in a mutton's intestine, and has been around since the 13th century. Only such sausages made in the Frankfurt region are allowed to be called a Frankfurter Wurtchen, Hot dog!
