Flights to Frankfurt

Frankfurt is the financial capital of Germany and is home to the European Central Bank. But there is more to this city than business. A city of great diversity, Frankfurt is not just a modern financial powerhouse but has oodles of old-world charm. This makes it perfect for travelers who want a slice of everything. The city is inhabited by over 700,000 people and offers museums, history, scenery, and a bustling wine scene to the recreational traveler. With banks, big business houses, trade shows, conferences, and shopping on one end, culture, traditions, and natural beauty, on the other hand, lure the tourists to this intriguing city. At the nucleus, Frankfurt is a charming traditional city with quaint medieval-styled timbered buildings, apple-wine taverns selling local cuisine, village and countryside towns with tiny cafes and shops and stunning parks, riverside promenades and gardens.

Tip: The cache of museums in the city is second to the ones in Berlin and worth a visit to get a sneak peek into the history of Germany.

Attractions in Frankfurt

Romerberg is a cobblestoned square in the old town and has been the center of social and civic life in Frankfurt. It is the venue for major events from elections to Christmas markets. You can also find historical buildings like the St. Paul’s Church, Old Nikolai Church and the exquisite Romer (from which the square inherits its name) which is home to the city government. The Imperial Hall also displays the portraits of 52 Holy Roman Emperors.

The Historisches Museum of Frankfurt lies to the south of Romerburg and features the private artifact and collectibles donated by affluent Frankfurters. You can find some exquisite musical instruments, technology, and furniture on display. The museum gives you a deep dive into the history and personality of Frankfurt and its relation to classic art.

Contrary to its image, Frankfurt has its own opera house- Alte Oper. The building is not as ancient as it looks. The neoclassical structure was ravaged during the Second World War and rebuilt in 1980. A public outcry saved its demolition and now, the structure hosts over 300 events in a year ranging from ballet, opera, modern and contemporary dance and symphony, rock concerts, and Broadway musicals. The Great Hall has a capacity of 2450 seats and the smaller events are hosted in the Mozart Hall with a capacity of 720 seats. Both of them have got fine décor and fantastic acoustics.

The Zoological Gardens is one of the oldest zoos in Europe and equally prestigious. It is home to over 4500 animals from 450 species. The zoo prides itself on being a global force in conservation and the preservation of Serengeti plains in Africa. The Exotarium has a wide collection of fish, reptiles, and aviary species from all over the world. The Borgori forest is inhabited by gorillas, chimpanzees, and orangutans. The beauty is that the Borgori forest is an indoor habitat replete with rainforest plants and waterfalls.

The Museum Embankment along the River Main is a collection of nine museums. Each of them has their individual specialty- art, architecture, movies, or natural history. The Liebieghaus and the Stadel Museum showcase work from Egypt, Europe, and exhibits from the 14th to 20th centuries.

Tip: River Main in Frankfurt has found its way as a recreational outfit and tourist attraction. Private operators run sunset tours, dinner cruises, and sightseeing cruises that take a tour of romantic castles along the Middle Rhine valley.

Shopping and dining in Reykjavik 

Zeil is Frankfurt’s premier shopping promenade where the motto is “ shop till you drop”. Department stores, retail giants, specialty shops offer retail therapy, and tourists can go on a spree shopping under sycamore trees. Whatever it is you are looking for, you will find it in this pedestrian shopping arena.

Goethestrabe, Bruckenstrabe, and Wallstrabe are home to luxury labels and top designer brands from Gucci, Versace to Armani. Frankfurt also has countless independent boutiques that offer their distinct signature lines nestled in the tiny hamlets away from the humdrum of the city.

International cuisine, creative gastronomy, gourmet kitchens, five-star restaurants, trendy roadside eateries to traditional apple wine pubs, Frankfurt has culinary offerings that are diverse and satisfying to every gastronomic delight.

The Kleinmarkthale is where the locals come to shop. The building may not be appealing but the merchandise is first class. Sausages, bread, sushi to handmade ravioli, you can find everything here. Don’t forget to queue up for the hot wurst bun served by a veteran who still follows her traditional family recipe.

Hostels, campgrounds, 2-star to 5-star hotels, bed and breakfasts, Frankfurt has it all.  As a city frequented by business and leisure travelers, it has several affordable stay options.

Tip: Apple Wine is colloquially known as “Stöffche"; “Schoppe” or “Ebbelwei" has been the popular beverage of Frankfurt for over 250 years. Enjoy it with the locals in a rustic wine pub where it is served in an earthenware jug called “bembel” and drunk from a ribbed glass called “gerippte”. Most of these pubs are concentrated in Old Sachsenhausen.
