Hauptwache - Review
The Hauptwache building is located right in the city center and is another impressive historical site that you can’t miss. There is an entire square, which is a major transportation hub in central Frankfurt and the nearby areas that the building is a backdrop for. Nevertheless, the building will keep your eyestrained on it through its captivating Baroque architectural design, which features only two floors with a huge rooftop. This historic building is definitely a distinctive sight, because it is surrounded by numerous contemporary buildings and amenities, and it is a place where you can enjoy a cup of warm coffee or tea.The reason for this is that it has been turned into a sort of heritage cafe now.
“An Der Hauptwache”, which is the main square in front of the Hauptwache building is a very popular shopping destination as well. It marks the beginning of “Zeil” which is the most important shopping area in Frankfurt.

Hauptwache, Frankfurt Reviews
Its best place to meet up and plan for city exploration. Christmas market was at its best offering amazing food.
Convenient place galeria have great food and ac and a street full of vendors within walking distance to Rome square!
Great station. And almost every metro and tram stops here. It is the best place to start exploring the city from.
Very good station conveniently located in a very spacious city centre plaza with a great view of the skyscrapers, including the Commerzbank Tower, the tallest in Germany at 259m! What's more, all the major shopping outlets are next door, as well as places to eat! Being only a quick 12 minute hop on the S-Bahn (S8/9) from the airport, it is the perfect spot for a quick city break during a medium or long layover!
Good connections for exploring the city...
