Frankfurt is a city that offers several shopping malls
and streets that please everyone who likes to shop, from
those who have a lot to spend to the most restrained,
but who don't miss the chance to return home with at
least one souvenir..
When walking through the central
area of the city, you cannot be indifferent to
Zeil Fussgängerzone, a pedestrian
street with a huge shopping mall - MyZeil
- full of stores like Replay, Superdry and Swarovsky, as
well as jaw-dropping architecture. Inside, for example,
the visitor will find an escalator that goes from the
ground floor to the fourth floor without stopping. If you are interested in retro style items, just visit

mentioning, as it houses a series of stores of all kinds
- including two famous department stores,
Galeria Kaufhof and Karstadt -
various snack bars / cafes, in addition to the fact that
it usually hosts for the presentation of street artists.
But if the intention is to take home souvenirs from

each other and sell a wide variety of products.

A few meters walk from the Hauptwache and the
bustling Zeil shopping street, is the Goethestraße. A

Große Bockenheimer Straße
Bockenheimer Straße is a shopping street that is just
a few meters from Opernplatz (see map), Frankfurt's Old
Opera Square. Throughout its length, there are
commercial establishments of the most diverse types,
among them Apple, cafes such as Starbucks, Häagen-Dazs,
clothing and accessories stores and much more.
In the middle of Frankfurt's largest shopping area,
more precisely on the An der Hauptwache square
, is the Baroque building erected between 1729 and 1731
by designer Johann Samhaimer. Initially, the site
functioned as a police / prison station, but, years
later, it housed the cozy Hauptwache café.
The Hauptwache and the square itself are also
considered to be true meeting points in the city. On
site, which is just a few steps from Zeil (the famous
shopping street), Paulskirsche (church) and the
Eschenheimer Turm, there is also a Metro station.
The busy street just a few steps from the
Hauptbanhof, Frankfurt's central train station, is one
of the few places in Germany where you can still find
18th century buildings that were not destroyed in World
The Kaiserstraße is extensive and the part closest to
the station ends up being well known for bringing
together stores like sex shops and houses that offer
adult entertainment. The other part, however, has a
series of stores - some of which are luxury - in
addition to cafes and snack bars where it is possible to
eat something delicious and without spending the tubes.
Our tip in the area is Jasmin's Finest Bagueteria, a
coffee of Turkish origin that serves a range of
delicacies at affordable prices.
Food markets and markets are highly recommended
places for those who want to know more about a
particular culture. And the Kleinmarkthalle in
Frankfurt leaves nothing to be desired in this regard.
The market is closed and not very large, but it
offers a good variety of food products and a floor full
of food stands prepared and sold on the spot, as well as
excellent wines. Among the most popular foods is the
famous typical sausage / sausage served with mustard and
bread. It is worthwhile to face the long lines that are
formed to taste this delight!

The Römerberg is, without a doubt, one of the sights
that most symbolize the city of Frankfurt. Located in
the old center, the square draws attention for its
beautiful buildings, including the Alte

the Romer has expanded over the years, totaling three
buildings (the middle one is known as "Zum Römer").

that is, six "houses" rebuilt according to models from
