Delve into history at the Römer, Paul's Church and Kaiserdom
Frankfurt’s charming old city is packed with historic landmarks. Don’t miss the Kaiserdom, where German emperors were crowned, Paul’s Church, where Germany’s democracy was born, and the Römer, which has been Frankfurt’s beautiful city hall since 1405.
Frankfurt Messe – home to over 40 national and international trade shows
Each year, Frankfurt Messe welcomes visitors from around the world to its many national and international trade shows and exhibitions, including the Frankfurt Book Fair and the International Motor Show (IAA) creating a truly international, cosmopolitan vibe.
See the city from 200 metres up
Fondly nicknamed Mainhattan for its impressive number of skyscrapers, Frankfurt boasts 14 of Germany’s 15 tallest buildings. You’ll get the best view from the top of Main Tower, a 56-floor masterpiece which has an observation deck, restaurant and art gallery.
Step inside Goethe House
The boyhood home of poet and statesman Johann Wolfgang Goethe is one of Frankfurt’s most cherished buildings. You can visit the house where he was born in 1749 for an intimate glimpse of the writer’s early life and works.
Discover Frankfurt by boat
For an altogether different perspective of the city, hop on a boat for a tour along the River Main. You’ll get a stunning view of Frankfurt’s skyline, and can cruise down to the Rhine as far as pretty wine towns like Eltville and Rüdesheim.
Find a palm tree in the city
Whatever the time of year, you’ll find a feast of warmth and colour in the tropical gardens and glasshouses of Palmengarten. Germany’s biggest botanical garden throngs with exotic flowers, palm trees, cacti and underwater flora.
Ride the 'cider' tram
You can’t step far from your hotel in Frankfurt without wanting to step on a tram. The colourful Ebbelwei Express is an irresistible way to explore the city, especially with a glass of its famous apfelwein, or apple cider, in your hand.
