Historically fascinating architecture
Historically fascinating architecture
Frankfurt’s historical centre, known as Römerberg, was almost entirely identically rebuilt after WWII. The half-timbered houses, cathedral, Saint Paul’s church and gothic town hall are real gems. The Sachsenhausen area is hidden away on the other side of the Main. This old area of the city is also extremely charming.

Similarly to Berlin and its Museum island, Frankfurt has condensed its museums on the southern bank. The “museum river bank” - known as the Museumufer - runs along the Main in the Sachsenhausen district. You can explore the Städel with its European art (Rembrandt, Matisse, etc.), the Modern Art Museum, the German Film Museum and many more.

Getting out into the fresh air is no problem at all in Frankfurt. The city boasts beautiful natural areas - such as the Grüneberg and Berthman parks. The Palmengarten is also worth a visit. Greenhouses, palm trees and a tropicarium make it a magical place. If you enjoy boat rides, you should consider a cruise along the Main.

Grüne soße (green sauce) is less known and seasons quite a few dishes with its seven different herbs. Lastly, why not try the ultimate drink - apfelwein - which is a local cider.

Culture and history

An imperial cathedral

An imperial cathedral

Have an imperial day at Römerberg square and Saint Bartholomew cathedral. Partially spared by WWII bombings, the edifice boasts 15th-century adornments. This red-clad cathedral saw German emperors be elected and crowned for over two centuries!

In the house of famed author

The famous German writer Goethe came from Frankfurt. His house can be visited in the Großer Hirschgraben, giving us a view of a bourgeois 18th-century family’s daily life. Some documents belonging to the author of Faust can be seen, as can his office - where he wrote his first literary works.

A marvellous museum

A marvellous museum

The Senckenberg museum is one of the largest natural history museums in Germany. Watch out for the dinosaurs! It has an impressive collection of animal skeletons and fossils, to wow children and adults alike. The various floors take visitors on a journey to different eras - both on land and in the sea.
