Skirting the south bank of the Main River, Sachsenhausen comprises 2 districts - Sachsenhausen-Nord and Sachsenhausen-Süd. Cross one of the bridges from the city centre to reach this medieval quarter, which has traditionally been known for its Apfelwein (apple wine) industry and old cider bars dotting the older part, Alt-Sachsenhausen. The cobblestoned streets are lined with half-timbered houses and pubs with outdoor seating.

The stretch along the river embankment is the Museumsufer, where you can find 10 museums – Ikonenmuseum, Museum für Angewandte Kunst, Museum der Weltkulturen, Deutsches Filmmuseum, Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Museum für Kommunikation, Städel, Liebieghaus, Museum Giersch, and Portikus. Schweizer Straße is the main boulevard in the area extending from Untermainbrucke to Mörfelder Landstraße, while Klappergasse has the highest concentration of pubs. The main landmarks in Sachsenhausen are the Henninger Turm and Goetheturm.

Other highlights of the area are the 19th century Neo-Gothic Dreikönigskirche, Sachsenhäuser Warte – a late-Gothic fortress, Affentor houses, the Jugenstil style Lukaskirche, Neue Frankfurt settlement, baking-stone-Expressionist style Saint Bonifatius Church, Frau-Rauscher-Brunnen, and Nuur Mosque.
