Frequented by local hipsters and the after-work crowd, Walon & Rosetti is cosy, stylish and as popular for its cocktail list as its regularly changing menu of generously portioned salads and grills. Reserve a table, but if you arrive early, head for the bar to sip on a Frankfurt Sour whilst you wait.
Despite Frankfurt’s varied history as a medieval merchant city and a hotspot of the 1968 revolution, as the financial centre of Europe it’s never quite shaken off its reputation as a boring city full of soulless bankers. But today, Frankfurt is finally starting to realise its potential as a dynamic international city. In 48 hours, you’ll discover a vibrant arts and culture scene, beautiful green spaces, traditional taverns and Michelin-starred restaurants, and an ever-increasing number of hip bars and nightclubs—all set against a striking juxtaposition of medieval buildings and towering skyscrapers. It’s not an obvious choice for a weekend getaway, but give it a chance and Frankfurt may well win your heart.
