Frankfurt’s Good-Living People Zone

Opera House (Alte Oper): Finished in 1880, Frankfurt’s opera house celebrated German high culture and the newly created nation. Mozart and Goethe flank the entrance, reminders that this is a house of both music and theater. The original opera house was destroyed in World War II. Over the objections of a mayor nicknamed “Dynamite Rudi,” the city rebuilt it in the original style. Underneath is a U-Bahn station (Alte Oper).

• Facing the Opera, turn right down Frankfurt’s famous...

Fressgass’: The official names for this pedestrian street are Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse and Kalbächer Gasse...but everyone in Frankfurt calls it the Fressgass’, roughly “Feeding Street.” Herds of bank employees come here on their lunch breaks to fill their bellies before returning for another few hours of cud-chewing at their computers. It’s packed gable-to-gable with eateries and shoulder-to-shoulder with workers wolfing €2 sandwiches, plates of Asian food and, yes, burgers from McDonald’s. Join in if you’re hungry—or wait for more eating options in a couple blocks.
