The insider foodie guide to Frankfurt:

#1 Oosten 

You can find Oosten a bit outside of the city centre, in Ostend. Situated right on the banks of the Main, the restaurant’s terrace, which has recently gone from an insider tip to one of the hottest locations in the city, offers spectacular views of the skyline. In the kitchen, they will conjure up all manner of delicious treats for you. From tuna steaks to couscous with grilled vegetables. Visitors for an afternoon coffee or an after-work drink are always welcome, too.

#4 Frau Rauscher

It is believed that Frau Rauscher, a protagonist of Frankfurt’s well-known traditional folk song, lived in the Klappergasse, in the Alt-Sachsenhausen district. Today, there is a fountain on Klappergasse to commemorate the former Frankfurt resident. Right next to it, you can find a traditional apple wine tavern named after Frau Rauscher, which offers local cuisine, and of course, the typical Frankfurter Grüne Soße.
