Große Bockenheimer Straße/Kalbächer Gasse
Frankfurt am Main
Grosse Bockenheimer Strasse and Kalbächer Gasse, connecting Opera Square with Rathenau Square, are commonly referred to as the Fressgass, Frankfurt's culinary mile. After World War I, numerous grocery stores, fruit n'veg shops and delicatessens took up residence here.
The street was turned into Frankfurt's first pedestrian zone in 1975/1976. It is home to an excellent range of delicatessens, offering a colourful variety of local, regional and international specialities. There are also countless cafés, bistros, bars and restaurants serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon snacks and happy-hour drinks. Tired after a long day? Then come and relax, enjoy a snack, meal or beverage beneath rows and rows of beautiful sycamore trees.
