5 good reasons to go to Frankfurt
To see / do
Culture and history
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
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.
Taste Frankfurt’s cider
Since booking your flight have you only had one thing on your mind? Tasting some apfelwein? Why not go on a cider pub crawl in the Sachsenhausen area. Nicknamed the “Apfelwein district”, it is home to many bars in which the drink can be tasted. The cider served there is produced near Frankfurt.
A delicious German meal
For a quick and relaxed bite to eat, head to the Kleinmarkthalle market. Many stalls serve the famous Frankfurter sausage. You can also indulge in some pastries or traditional dishes in Große Bockenheimer street. There is a large choice of restaurants and tea rooms to choose from.
Frankfurt’s famous sausages
Do the words frankfurter würstchen not ring a bell? Then the Frankfurter sausage surely does. This pork sausage is smoked and is a classic in German gastronomy. Whether in restaurants or as street food, it can be enjoyed in all kinds of ways. Do you prefer it in a bun or served with some salad and potatoes?
Locals in Frankfurt bake delicious pastries and tasty biscuits. Bethmännchen are one of the German city’s specialities. Very similar to marzipan, they are made with ground almonds, and then flavoured with rose essence. They are mainly eaten at Christmas time.
