Originally the site of a Roman settlement, Höchst is a district in Frankfurt, which features some of the most picturesque streets in the city. Lined with half-timbered houses, this area is filled with historical sites and entertaining attractions. In particular, the Alt-Höchst, Frankfurt’s oldest district located on the banks of the Main River, is packed with fascinating tourist sites. Since 1972,this district has been protected by the city as a local historical site, due to its many important buildings. The annual castle festival is held here in early summer, and centres around the Höchst Castle and St. Justin’s Church.
- Climb the watchtower of the Höchster Schloß, or Höchst Castle, the late medieval structure that dominates this area of Frankfurt, and follow that with a pint of beer or a meal in the Schlossplatz.
- Imagine what life used to be like inside the Justinuskirche, or St. Justin’s Church, the oldest building in Frankfurt, which dates from 850.
- Stroll among the rooms of one of the district’s most interesting structures, the Bolongaro Palace; this building was completed in 1774, and features terraced gardens arranged around the spectacular Neptune Fountain and sandstone figures of Turkish musicians.
Frequent train service connects Höchst to Frankfurt’s Hauptbahnhof, or Central Train Station, through the S1 and S2 light rail lines, with an approximate 10-minute travel time. The Höchst train station also has regional commuter train service to central Frankfurt, as well as to nearby suburbs and outlying towns. In the district, visitors can ride Frankfurt’s only ferry service down the River Main to travel to the Schwanheimer Riverbank to see the Schwanheim Dune nature reserve. Travellers coming from the airport can use the train connections to reach the city centre then and continue on to this historical neighbourhood.
