On a lovely day there isn't a better place to have a schnitzel. Food is really good and the service efficient. Situated in an attractive square near the tower.

Up a cobbled path under a vaulted archway from the Batterie running alongside the Main takes you into the Höchster Schloßplatz and the Alte Zollwache. Proper traditional German food, stunning building and, if you just fancy a beer, a great little bar. Not that much...More

Located at the 'Hoechster Schlossplatz' the restaurant 'Alte Zollwache' offers good typical Frankfurter food and real Applewine. Nice outdoor sitting and great ambiente. Highly recommendable.
