    3. 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.

What people are saying about Old Sachsenhausen

The boat tour was great and I can only recommend it to everyone. It is best to take a 100min tour because you can see both sides. You should come a little earlier because otherwise you won't get any more space upstairs

The boat trip was very nice and interesting. Also suitable for families and children

Very nice route, good explanations in German, good food. Fun for little money

It was great...only people must get before your trip to take the seats:-)

We were with a group of 7 people and had a lot of fun
