Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Carl Theodor Old Bridge (Alte Brucke) and Rhine Valley.

There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Cathedral of St. Bartholomew (Dom St. Bartholomaus), snap pictures at Eiserner Steg, don't miss a visit to Römer, and contemplate the long history of Alte Nikolaikirche.
