Frankfurt am Main is Germany‘s fifth-largest city and Europe‘s largest financial center. The city‘s central location within Germany and Europe makes it a major transport hub and Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is one of the world‘s busiest international airports where you can get connections to virtually all corners of the world.
The city has a unique skyline where the city's old restored buildings blend beautifully with a significant number of skyscrapers, which is pretty unusual for a European city. The city is actually home to 14 out of Germany's 15 skyscrapers.
The historic heart of Frankfurt is known as Römerberg and it‘s the center of the city‘s old town. With beautifully restored medieval buildings and the city hall, aka Römer, standing by the historic Paulsplatz square. Close by is the famous Cathedral of St. Bartholomew where you can climb up to the tower for a great view of the city.
Close to Frankfurt is Trier and the famous Moselle wine region, perfect for a day trip out of the city.
A Goethe good time
Frankfurt has more than 30 museums of great variety. We especially recommend Liebieghaus, the Museum of Modern Art and Städel, one of the most famous art museums in Germany. Frankfurt is also the birthplace of Johann Wolfgang Goethe so a visit to Goethe-Haus is in order.
If you're planning on shopping during your vacation in Frankfurt you should head to Zeil, Frankfurt's central shopping street. The street is pedestrian-only and bordered by two large public squares and is home to the main shopping chains of the world. For smaller shops and fewer crowds head to Berger Strasse, Frankfurt's longest shopping street.
Food lovers should look for Freßgass (also known as Kalbächer Gasse), a pedestrian street in the city center, and Kaiserstraße and Kleinmarkthalle, where you can find regional delicacies like green sauce.
Frankfurt has moderately cold winters and warm summers, with temperature ranging from 12-25°C during the summer and -2-10°C during the winter.
