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.
