During the day I really have nothing to report on. We had been traveling for two weeks, I've seen amazing sights in two countries, and on this last day I was ready to be home. Here are some pictures you haven't seen yet of the beautiful sights of Frankfurt:
For dinner Greg's co-workers suggested a true Frankfurt restaurant. What a perfect last day in Frankfurt! We walked through the Romer area over the Love Bridge and across the river to the Sachenhausen area. We entered the little courtyard of Zur Germania and found an open table. We entered the little courtyard of Zur Germania and found an open table. Our waiter brought us menus but since they were only in German we asked him for some suggestions. He was patient, very friendly and easily suggested the Pork Knuckle and the Schnitzel with Frankfurt green sauce.
We started our meal with a couple of beers and then realized we should have ordered Apfelwein. Apfelwein is a lightly carbonated drink from apples. It's kind of a cross between a cider and an apple wine. It's on the tart side but not harshly so. You can order the drink straight or mixed with water. We decided to order it straight.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Schnitzel with green sauce. The green sauce is a combination of sour cream, yogurt, and 7 herbs. Thankfully dairy in Germany doesn't upset my stomach because this sauce is amazing!! Greg's dish was definitely the best one though. The Pork Knuckle (shank) was roasted to perfection. The meat was tender and came right off of the bone, the fat had been melted away, and the flavor was slightly smoky. Delicious!!
Our waiters shift was ending so we didn't get to choose a dessert or a schnapps to end the meal. This didn't ruin our experience though and definitely would recommend a visit here!
I'll be honest Frankfurt was on my list of cities to see but I'm so thankful that I got the chance to visit. Frankfurt is a wonderful city that I recommend and hope to visit again!
