The economic capital of the EU, and home to one of the most important international business fairs, also hosts the largest Book Fair in the world and boasts one of the continent’s largest and most varied music scenes. By taking one of our cheap flights to Frankfurt, you will discover a metropolis with a wealth of attractions.
Located on the banks of the Main river, its trademark skyline of modern skyscrapers includes the Commerzbank Tower, designed by renowned architect Norman Foster, which was the first skyscraper erected in Germany, and the second in Europe. Frankfurt also boasts an array of monuments and architectural sites that date back through the ages, which, due to bombings during World War II, have mostly been restored in recent times. Examples of these are the Frankfurt Gothic Cathedral, St. Paul’s Church, famous for housing Germany’s first democratically elected parliament in 1848, and the Römer town hall, a beautiful group of Medieval buildings. Unlike many others, the central Sachsenhausen neighbourhood remained unharmed after the bombings and is now one of the most lively parts of the city, with a large selection of restaurants and bars serving the famous Frankfurter sausages and the best local cider, such as ‘Zum Gemalten Haus’ and ‘Wagner’.
Shopaholics should head straight for the exclusive Fressgass street, the bustling pedestrian Zeil street and the multicultural Münchener Strasse. If you are looking for culture, this city does not disappoint. The majority of Frankfurt’s museums are located on the banks of the river, known as Museumsufer, where you will find the Städel, one of Germany’s most important museums, housing works by Rembrandt, Boticelli and Degas, the German Film Museum, Goethe’s Birth House, and many more.
If nature is what you seek, you have hit the jackpot, as over fifty per cent of inner city Frankfurt is a protected green zone. A large forest, a multitude of parks and two botanical gardens give air to a city that has triumphantly risen from the ashes of its past.
