We took a tram from Willy-Brandt-Platz to Schweizer Platz right across the River Main. We were in Sachsenhausen. It’s amazing how a modern city like Frankfurt could have a nice cosy little place nearby.
We took a stroll down Schweizerstrasse towards the riverbank. The place reminded us of Paris with its tree-lined streets and people walking about.
Sachsenhausen is famous for two things.
“What two things?”
“The apple wine we tasted this morning and museums.”
Tip: Get the Museumsufer Ticket for €28. Two adults and two children for two consecutive days.
Unfortunately we were short on time, so we had to skip the museums. If you have time on your hands, you can get the Museumsufer Ticket, which costs €28 for two consecutive days. You might be screaming bloody murder at the price but the ticket covers two adults and two children. So there.
“How many museums are there?”
“At least ten.”
It was a hot day and the perfect time to get ourselves some ice-cream. Having done my research earlier, we came across Cafe Milano located along Schweizerstrasse.
Since we couldn’t enter any of the museums, we just kicked back our shoes and rest at the Museumpark overlooking the River Main. I like parks in Europe where they grow trees big enough to shade the area. Our municipal council should learn a trick or two from the Germans.
We were almost at our last leg of the journey in Frankfurt. One last thing to cross out on the bucket list.
It was time for the sunset views. And there is no better place to catch that other than at the Main Tower. Entrance is just €5 per person and we get whisked to the top, 200m from the ground level. Make sure to stay there from sunset right till it gets dark. I promise you there is no better sight than to see the whole of Frankfurt transition from light to dark.
Tip: For just €5 per person (2013), this is the cheapest tower view ever.
You get a 360-degree panoramic view of Frankfurt and on a clear day, you could even see the Flughafen (airport).
Update: The price is now €6.50 per person.
We were hungry by the time we left the Main Tower. With nothing worth mentioning at the airport, we settled for an Asian styled dinner at Mosch Mosch. What more do we want? A preparation on our journey back home.
Be prepared to rub shoulders with your fellow diners as there are no personal tables or booths except by the bar, the rest of the restaurant is arranged in benches and long tables. Hogwarts anyone?
The restaurant prides itself regarding low-calorie, healthy food so what’s there to complain about? Treat your senses and lessen the worries about putting on weight when you dine here.
The price? €93 for 6 adults. Not too expensive.
Thus, this ends the Swiss Bliss Trip of 2013. Not sure when will I be able to travel again, amongst some of the remaining bucket list: New Zealand, Australia, Spain, England, Eastern Europe, Mediterranean Europe and some.
Till then, travel more and enjoy!
