Our trip to Frankurt was uneventful, and when we arrived we were able to take a train directly to the stop closest to our hotel. The only issue we ran into was that our hotel was situated in a strange spot - not exactly close to the train/subway station, but because of exactly where it was there was no good way to get a cab there, either. Plus the road curved and that combined with the hotel address made it a bit confusing. Obviously we eventually found it, but let's just say it was very hot, our bags were very heavy, and we ended up taking the long way around. Oops!
After dropping our things off in our room and freshening up, we decided to have a late lunch/early dinner and then wander around the city a bit. We ate at a little bistro/bar called Solberfass'je, located at Grosse Friedberger Strasse 8 - just near the corner of that road and the Kunstablerwache. At first glance it looks small and honestly a bit dingy, but the server - who I'm fairly certain was also the owner - was great, the prices were right and the food was amazing. A definite recommendation on our part, should you ever be in Frankfurt!
We finished eating and commenced our wandering. Though I had looked up some "top things to do in Frankfurt" we really had no solid plans to follow the little list I created. It was still fairly early and we not only stumbled into a random renaissance fair, but also got to see the Romerplatz, the Romer itself and the Frankfurt Dom! We even hung out on the grass by the Main for a while, just enjoying the warm sun.
